Regionalism in Action

Posted Monday, February 5, 2007

When talk of regionalism heads towards government consolidation, a lot of local municipalities back away from the table - until now. Seven fire departments, from Parma and Brooklyn to Berea, are working on plans to merge. The proposal has near universal support from city council members to rank and file fire fighters. Elsewhere in Cuyahoga County, a group of local mayors is pondering the fiscal savings in a consolidated garbage contract. Regionalism in action - join us for The Sound of ideas, Monday morning at nine on 90.3.
