There's been a lot of talk in Northeast Ohio about regional collaboration. Will there finally be some action? Four local communities -- Moreland Hills, Orange, Pepper Pike and Woodmere -- are considering a merger. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll discuss the benefits and the barriers and look at other communities ripe for merger. Would you be happy if your city joined with its neighbors in the name of government efficiency? Let's talk about it Monday at 9 on 90.3.
