Big City Blues: Western Weber County Considers Incorporating

Western Weber county has been in the news of late after gathering signatures in the communities of West Weber, Warren, West Warren, and Taylor to study whether to incorporate as a city. Meanwhile, nearby cities like Plain City and West Haven wouldn't mind bringing those 4,700 residents in to the fold (along with all of their property tax revenue).
