Parkersburg - A review of West Virginia State Police detachments has Calhoun County leaders concerned their detachment may be closed.
For almost a month, Bob Weaver, president of the Calhoun County Commission and editor of the Hur Herald, an online news site, has been trying to find out if West Virginia State Police officials were considering the closure of the Grantsville barracks, consolidating it with the Clay County detachment.
The Hur Herald reported earlier the agency was looking at a $450,000 piece of property in the Big Otter area that could be used as a combination barracks for Clay and Calhoun.
Weaver said he couldn't get an answer from state police officials and enlisted the aid of acting state Senate President Jeff Kessler, D-Marshall.
"Just to get this piece of information has taken weeks," Weaver said. "We got it by using Sen. Kessler."
