Berkeley County office building reopens today

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Berkeley County offices, including the tax, assessor, planning and engineering departments, will reopen as scheduled at 9 a.m. today, Berkeley County Commission President Ronald K. Collins announced on Thursday.

"All you people that got four days off, Merry Christmas," Collins said.

The closure this week of the Dunn Building at 400 W. Stephen St. was needed because of an ongoing roof replacement project that involves asbestos removal, officials had said. Air quality tests conducted provided the clearance to reopen the building, officials said Thursday.

Other offices affected by the closure were the Health Department's administrative offices, Berkeley County Fire Board, Berkeley County Emergency Ambulance Authority administrative offices, Eastern Panhandle Regional Planning & Development Council office and the West Virginia University Extension Service office for Berkeley County.

The closure also forced Blue Ridge Community and Technical College, which leases space from the county, to temporarily relocate their enrollment management and administrative offices.


The Berkeley County Commission's offices temporarily are in the Judicial Center and will remain open.
