MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- The Berkeley County Planning Commission's budget for the current fiscal year was formally reduced on Thursday by $556,344 by the County Commission.

"I don't think any of us anticipated the housing market to stop," Commissioner William L. "Bill" Stubblefield said.

"It hasn't slowed down, (it has) stopped."

The budget revision resolution approved cut the Commission's contracted services budget line but day-to-day operations are not affected, County Administrator Deborah Hammond said.

The planning commission's 2008-09 budget anticipated $1.9 million in revenue, according to the levy estimate posted on the Commission's Web site.

After the Commission meeting on Thursday, Stubblefield said he did not anticipate asking other county elected officers to make another midyear budget cut, but he also would not rule out the possibility of having to make other budget revisions.
