I have often wondered how and why it took so long for someone other than myself to figuge this one out. Although consolodation of municipal services should seem to be a "no brainer", as many other states provide them on a county or regional bases enjoying a huge cost savings, we in Massachusetts are content with a bloated state government and underfunded municipal goverments trying to scratch out basic services. Hell, the folks in the Town of Barnstable won't even consolodate their Fire Departments! Just how much are willing to pay for such continued absurdity?
