CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Department of Natural Resources says it’s moving 17 jobs from downtown Cumberland to nearby Rocky Gap State Park.

The state Board of Public Works awarded a $726,000 contract Wednesday to Barton-based C&M Construction and Renovations to renovate a park building for new offices.

The DNR says the move will involve workers in the agency’s wildlife, forestry, land acquisition, engineering and information technology units.

The DNR says three licensing workers have already moved from the city to the park.

A spokeswoman say the move will save about $84,000 a year in rent.

The Cumberland Times-News reports that the DNR offices are currently housed in a building owned by the Allegany Museum.

Western regional wildlife manager Jim Mullan told the Times-News that the move is planned for this fall.
