Berkeley County BOE to bid on court building

November 03, 2007

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - In an emergency meeting Friday, the Berkeley County Board of Education voted to allow the school district's superintendent to take part in the Berkeley County Commission's property auction today.

"We only have 106 portable classrooms, so we're always looking for space," Superintendent Manny P. Arvon II said when asked of the board's decision to allow him to bid on the county's former magistrate court building at 120 W. John St. "We will be there."

The circa-1909 brick and limestone structure originally was built for the county's school district and was known as the John Street School.

The three-story building is one of five properties that county commissioners hope to sell today beginning at 9 a.m.
