The inaugural committee for Gov.-elect Jim Justice says he’ll receive the public in the state Capitol in Charleston following his 1 p.m. inauguration on Jan. 16 on its South Plaza.

That will be followed by a reception in the nearby West Virginia Culture Center in honor of the late civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., whose birthday is observed as both a national and state holiday on that Monday.

An inaugural ball is scheduled that evening at the Greenbrier Resort that Justice owns in White Sulphur Springs that requires tickets scheduled to go on sale Jan. 5.
