I like how the county commission was all against this when Bridgeport wanted to do this. But I bet they are on board now since Clarksburg wants to now. County goverment is shady and corrupt if it doesn't help out them or Clarksburg it's no good

The State Association for Commissioners did not support the Home Rule Bill over all, not directed at any particular city. As for the local commission, according to what I have heard in the few commission meetings I have attended, they have been supportive of B-port in everything except fire fees outside of the city limits, because those particular citizens went to the commission with the complaint about fire fees.
