WASHINGTON COUNTY - The state has rejected a program in which Washington County would transport residents seeking work to jobs in the Hunters Green Business Center, County Commissioners Vice President William J. Wivell said Tuesday. The County Commissioners said they plan to send a letter asking the state to reconsider supporting the program and they might explain the program to state officials through a presentation. The commissioners in June approved a $246,000 grant-funded pilot program in which County Commuter, the county's bus system, would pick up county residents receiving temporary cash assistance and transport them to work in the business park along Hopewell Road.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Berkeley County leaders Thursday allocated $200,000 in tax revenue generated by coal mined in West Virginia to keep a fledgling 324-acre economic development project south of Martinsburg afloat. County commissioners Howard L. Strauss, Steven C. Teufel and Ronald K. Collins voted unanimously to allocate coal severance funds for Tabler Station Business Park debt payments, engineering and design costs. The lack of property sales at the business park off U.S. 11 near Eastern West Virginia Regional Airport and Tabler Station Road all but forced Development Authority Executive Director Robert "Bob" T. Crawford to ask the commission for help.
