GREENBRIER COUNTY (WVVA) -

Charges against former and current Greenbrier County Commissioners have been dropped.

Former Commission President Betty Crookshanks and current Commission President Karen Lobban were each indicted in June on one count of misappropriation of hotel occupancy tax.

Lobban confirmed that Thursday morning, their lawyers met with Judge Joseph Pomponio and the charges were dismissed.

The charge stems from both women voting in favor of giving $1.3 million to renovating a pool at the New River Community and Technical College.

The property was not owned by the county.

The school has given back $300,000 of it, but the remaining $1 million is still in separate litigation.
