Morgantown City Council Chambers Begin Upgrade


Construction began late Tuesday night inside Morgantown City Hall to repair damage to the council chambers from a 2014 roof leak.

The $22,834 project will replace carpeting and scratched wall panels, install a new ceiling, remove exposed wiring, upgrade the chamber’s video system and more.
