CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- An official at the Los Alamos National Laboratory will soon start overseeing the West Virginia Capitol and other state buildings.

Administration Secretary Ross Taylor announced Gregory Melton as the new director of the General Services Division on Monday. Melton starts April 1.

Melton has been a maintenance manager and group leader at Los Alamos. The New Mexico complex is 36 square miles with more than 1,200 buildings and 8 million square feet of facility space.

General Services oversees the state Capitol building and its campus as well as other state government buildings around the state. It has around 127 full-time employees.

Melton is also a former U.S. Air Force officer. He succeeds David Oliverio, who helped oversee a major turnaround at General Services before his departure earlier this month.
