West Virginia government is getting bigger and bigger, expanding its operations around the state.

The Clay Communicator reported Peachy Jarrett leased a 6,000 square foot building to the state for the local welfare office for $1,688 a month.

Ms. Jarrett said she was not given a written notice about moving the welfare office to a building owned by Clay publisher-politician Clinton Nichols.

That building has 7,000 square feet, but is now being rented for nearly $6,000 a month, about $4,500 more than the former building.

Charleston did look for new buildings, claiming the Clay office was not adequate.

Meanwhile, Clinton Nichols' properties in Clay are going on the bankruptcy block, reportedly since the Clay County Bank got in trouble over loans and extensions on his projects.

Charleston's administrative secretary Greg Burton is wanting to build a new cluster of office buildings around the capitol with price tags ranging from $126 million to $214 million.
