State Commission Approves Bedford Reversion

Reporter: Lauren Compton

Bedford, VA-The City of Bedford has cleared another hurdle to becoming a town. On Monday, the Virginia Commission on Local Government submitted a report in favor of Bedford reverting to a town.

The state commission voted unanimously in favor of the reversion.

Next, Bedford City Council and the Bedford County Board of Supervisors must vote to accept the report. The last step requires a three judge panel to vote on the reversion. If all goes well, Bedford hopes to revert to town status July 2013.
