MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Berkeley County Council voted 3-0 Thursday to add four additional members to the Eastern West Virginia Regional Airport Authority.
Council President William L. “Bill” Stubblefield abstained from voting, saying he did not want to take such an action without all council members present.
Council member Douglas E. Copenhaver Jr. was absent.
The decision increased the airport authority’s board from six to 10 members, with seven being county appointees. The other three are appointed by the City of Martinsburg.
Citing state code, County Council member Elaine Mauck said she believed the decision on increasing membership had to be made before July 1, the start of the next fiscal year.
