Municipal Employment

BRIDGEPORT, WEST VIRGINIA (population: 8,582) is located in Harrison County in the North Central area of West Virginia.  Nestled at the intersection of U.S. 50 and Interstate 79, Bridgeport is at the southern end of what has been termed the “High-Tech Corridor”.  Bridgeport has been a conservative driven community placing value on keeping the financial stability of the community at the forefront of their capital planning and growth.  They are a  value-driven organization dedicated to responsive, respectful and courteous customer service.  The total budget for 2018-2019 including all funds is about $38 million with a general fund  budget of around $15.6 million.

Bridgeport was first settled between 1771 and 1774.  In the early 1800’s, a wooden covered bridge was constructed across the creek.  Legend has it that resident Joseph Johnson (later governor of Virginia) saw the bridge as a port.  When Johnson sought a charter for a new town to be built on 15 acres of land, he called the town “Bridgeport.”  The town was chartered in 1816 and incorporated in 1887.  The Northwestern Virginia Turnpike was the first road to lead directly from Bridgeport to Clarksburg.  The turnpike later became part of U.S. 50.  Now, Bridgeport and the entire region have benefited greatly from its prime location at the intersection of Interstate 79 and U.S. Route 50.
