CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Two Clarksburg code officers have agreed to surrender their licenses to settle a West Virginia Fire Commission complaint against the city.

The Exponent Telegram (https://bit.ly/1xB6g3y ) reports that the commission approved consent orders with the officers this week. A consent order with the city is pending.

The complaint alleges that the city’s building codes are unlawful and its code enforcement officers are uncertified and heavy-handed.

The Fire Commission also approved consent orders with two former code officers. Assistant Attorney General Stephen Connolly tells the newspaper that one agreed to surrender his certification for a year. The other received a license for property maintenance and a letter of warning that will remain in his file for a year.

Connolly says neither former employee can seek future employment with the city.
