450 (mostly accounting and financial management) positions will be relocated from Washington to Parkersburg as part of Public Debt's consolidation with Financial Management Service. Will be a nice boost to the local economy, and I'm sure the city is already seeing dollar signs with their $2.50 per week city user fee.

This is certainly a reversal of fortune. I remember the city's reaction months ago when the Public Debt announced they would enact some sort of consolidation in the future. Many were very anxious and thought that a good portion of the existing jobs in the city would be consolidated elsewhere. Now, it appears the opposite is going to happen and give a big shot in the arm to Parkersburg's downtown!

Oh, and even though this just broke, does anyone know whether the jobs will be housed in the Public Debt building (I don't know how much shell space there is), or will they be housed in another building, say the almost-empty federal building on Juliana and 5th?

If they were going to do this, why did they move out of the building the city just bought? Just curious.

I am not surprised with the move to here because most of the people who came many years ago were very happy here. Not all, but the majority sure did.

Let us face it -- WV workers make good employees. I mean this whether they are north or south because I believe a West Virginian is a West Virginian!
