MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Monongalia County Facilities Director Bobby Doyle said work on the future home of the county court system is on schedule and progressing every day.

“Everything is coming along really well. They’re finishing up the mechanical work on the third floor. Once that’s done, the drywall goes up and a lot of the work will move to the second floor,” Doyle said. “We’re looking somewhere around May or June to be done.”

The county purchased the former Harley O. Staggers building — also known as the former post office — for $700,000 in 2011 and contracted with Pittsburgh’s Massaro Corporation to renovate the property at a cost of about $17.2 million.

The building will house the county circuit court, magistrate court and family court upstairs. The first floor will contain the prosecutor’s office, the circuit clerk’s office, the day report center, the probation office, the county drug court and the county teen court.
