A consolidated government will provide many benefits to our community.
Here are few that we wanted to shared with you today:
- Industrial development opportunities will be enhanced as potential companies will only
have to navigate a single local government
- Having one voice with state government will enhance chances to obtain funding for
projects, especially roads.
- Public safety resources will be combined into a single resource for the citizens
- County residents would have an option to ask for the extension of city services, but that will be their choice. For example:
b. Storm-water conveyance
- Enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of local government. There are a lot of
talented folks that work for the city and the county and it makes sense that it would be
more efficient if they were on the same team.
