MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A Martinsburg-area contractor was the apparent low bidder for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning work to be done in Berkeley County’s new public safety building for the sheriff’s department’s law-enforcement division.

The $340,000 bid by Air-ROW Sheet Metal Co. Inc., announced Thursday by Berkeley County Council President William L. “Bill” Stubblefield, was $9,000 less than the bid submitted by Hagerstown-based M.S. Johnston Co. Inc.

Millers Electric Co. Inc., also of Martinsburg, submitted a $434,200 bid for the county project under way at 510 S. Raleigh St. A fourth bid was rejected because the contractor failed to attend a mandatory prebid conference, Berkeley County Deputy Administrator Alan Davis said.

  County officials approved a $5.5 million financing plan last year to pay for renovations to the former Martin’s Food Market building.

County officials hope to occupy the building by the end of the first quarter of 2013.
