(B) Except as otherwise provided for in this chapter, a petition for a joint county improvement shall proceed before the joint board of county commissioners the same as if the joint board were a board of county commissioners representing a county that included all the territory of all the counties represented by the commissioners on the joint board, except as otherwise modified in accordance with this chapter.
