Post Former Independent Cities in Virginia

The towns of Bedford and Clifton Forge no longer exist as independent cities in Virginia and are now part of their respective counties. Is it possible to remove Bedford and Clifton Forge cities and move their data into their counties?

Joe

The corresponding pages in the Wiki have been updated, so only the DB-side needs updating at this point.

Thanks for catching this.

Good evening Joe,

You might want to submit your suggested changes to the DB using the following "Submit" links:
Submit:Bedford City VA
Submit:Clifton Forge VA

This likely will get the requests into the hands of the DBA faster than this thread.

Hope this helps,

An admin can't remove or create jurisdictions. This would probably need to be addressed by Lindsay.

I tried this a while back with a change request for Bedford. The DBA was able to move the city agencies to the county, but did not remove the city of Bedford.

That was my assumption based on my experience above. Thanks for the confirmation.

Yes, it's a Lindsay fix. I've forwarded the info to him.

Lindsay,

Bedford City is still showing on the Virginia clickable map, and the new Central Virginia Radio Communications System (P25) is showing as four counties, when it only resides in three jurisdictions. I believe the old Bedford City may be the reason the system is reporting as being in four counties.

Thanks,
Dave
