 Berkeley County Council member Elaine C. Mauck says she hopes voters this year give her a chance to finish what she started since being elected to a two-year term in 2010. Former Berkeley County Commissioner Steven C. Teufel, who says his desire to better the community is “relentless,” is vying to unseat Mauck as the Republican Party's nominee in the Adam Stephen Magisterial District in the May 8 primary election. Mauck, 65, and Teufel, 52, both of Martinsburg, are among five Republicans and two Democrats seeking two open seats on Berkeley County Council in the 2012 election.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Budget concerns prompted the Berkeley County Commission on Thursday to freeze the planned hiring of a litter control officer, grant writer and traffic planner, but the commissioners agreed to move forward with hiring an in-house information technology manager. The county's full-time Director of Information Technology would reduce the need for contracted services that have amounted to more than $250,000 since 2004 and save more than $100,000 a year, according to Commission President Steven C. Teufel.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com Good Friday was almost better for Berkeley County employees, who were going to have some paid time off today until legal questions surfaced. Berkeley County Commissioner Steve Teufel asked Thursday that county employees be given two to four hours off today as administrative leave, saying they could use the time to attend church services. Commission President Howard Strauss, however, immediately spoke against the idea, saying not only was the proposal not on the meeting's agenda - making it a possible violation of open meeting laws - but if paid leave was granted for one religious holiday, it might be sought for others.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Berkeley County Commissioner Steve Teufel drew a crowd Wednesday, but it wasn't there to rally around him. Every seat was filled and people, all Teufel's neighbors, lined both walls clear out the doorway of council chambers at Martinsburg's City Hall during this month's city Planning Commission meeting. They were opposed to the county commissioner's request to split his 38,459-square-foot property in the Briarwood residential subdivision in half and build a house on the newly created lot. The commission voted unanimously to turn down the request, following comments by Teufel's neighbor, Dr. William Queen, who called the commissioner's proposal "senseless" and "unconscionable.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Two Berkeley County commissioners are renewing a bid to expand the county's governing court to five members, which they believe would help them keep up with the demands of administering the growing county. "You spend so much time on (administrative) issues and you have no time to plan for the future," Commissioner William "Bill" Stubblefield said Thursday after he and Commission President Steven C. Teufel asked legal counsel Norwood Bentley III to clarify exactly how the county could possibly increase the panel from three to five members.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A large contingent of Berkeley County Circuit Clerk Virginia Sine's staff appeared en masse before County Commissioners on Thursday to protest an unofficial decision not to reclassify their jobs, effectively denying them a more substantial pay increase. "We are disgruntled," one of Sine's deputy clerks told County Commission President Steven C. Teufel and Human Resources director Alan Davis in an unexpected and somewhat heated discussion near the end of the commission's regular meeting.
