I own two businesses in weirton. I'm looking to expand one business. If the B&O tax takes effect, not only will I not expand but I will move my businesses to another city. I will take what revenue the city does make from my business and take it to another place. I'm sure they will welcome the business. I am not alone. I have spoken to other businesses that are going to move. Then where will weirton get their money from? Add on the smoking ban that Hancock county wants to pass, I have to ask Where is the incentive to do business in weirton wv? Unless you are a corporate company in weirton, you don't stand a chance. I've heard of cities like this, they're called ghost towns. If you own a business in weirton that is in Hancock county, you will be taxed highly and your business will be snuffed out!!
