Albany- Beginning Monday the city and county will hold a series of information hearings about consolidation.
Last week, consultants released results of a study that showed the two governments could save $2 million by unifying their human resources, finance, public safety, and public works departments.
Consolidation Committee members will not only discuss those findings but also listen to input from citizens.
"It's an opportunity for all the taxpayers out there to give their input on how their tax dollars are going to be spent or saved. Either way you go with consolidation it's going to have a profound impact on every taxpayer in the city and the county," says Ward Five city commissioner Bob Langstaff.
City and County commissioners are urging everyone to take part in six part series. The first one begins tomorrow at 7 PM at the government center.
There will be two on Tuesday, one at noon at the Putney Community Center and another at Monroe high School at 7 PM.
There will also be two on Wednesday, one at noon at Robert Cross Magnet School and another at 7 PM at Mock Road Elementary.
The final hearing will be on Thursday at 7 PM. It will be at Deerfield Windsor High School.
