St. Louis Cty Honors Three With Names Buildings + Bridge
Two buildings and a bridge have new names - to honor faithful public servants from St. Louis County. With a vote at their recent meeting, the St. Louis County Board designated the following properties with their new names:
- The new St. Louis County Government Services Center in Virginia is now known as the Elizabeth Prebich Building. Prebich served as a County Commissioner for 14 years, representing the 6th District from 1987 to 2000. She was also the Board Chair twice - in 1990 and again in 1996. Prior to her service work on the County Board, Prebich worked as a county social worker. Prebich passed away in 2001 after a lengthy battle with cancer.
- The Public Works portion of the new St. Louis County Government Services Center-Cook will now be known as the David M. Skelton Transportation Building. Skelton worked for St. Louis County Public Works for 33 years, rising to the level of Deputy Public Works Director. Many credit him with modernizing maintenance operations.
- The recently-constructed bridge that spans the Black Duck River in Camp Five Township is now known as the James "Ding" Holter Memorial Bridge. A longtime resident of Camp Five Township, Holter also worked for St. Louis County for 39 years - including 28 years a Highway Maintenance Supervisor. He passed away in 2017 - less than four years after retiring.
