MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- The Berkeley County Commission on Thursday approved the hiring of an assistant county engineer who they said would work in place of three vacant positions. Angela K. Bowers will be paid $75,000 annually, Human Resources Director Alan J. Davis said. A licensed professional engineer, Bowers would assume direction of the County Engineering Department in the absence of County Engineer William T. "Bucky" Teach, commissioners said. The hiring decision came shortly after the commission heard complaints from a builder and developer who faulted the engineering department for belated enforcement of the county's 2004 storm-water management ordinance for minor subdivision projects.
