Why does Russell Co not put on ballet for citizens choice to merge city and county government. Save citizens lots of money stop duplicating services better for all. After all if Louisville and Jefferson Co can merge surely the two competing towns can come together. If not, well there are more voters county wide AND we out numbered them which might be why they don't want on ballot. We cannot afford these taxes and need to be smarter and wiser with resources

So if we merge I wouldn't have to pay 1 % to city and then again 1% to the city of my gross paycheck, which I don't see anyway, I agree could have one group instead of 3 bound to save some money and have better services if put together

Are you kidding? No way the little kings in Russell county calling the shots come hell or high water would ever give up their little kingdoms and unite in one county government! These people and their families live for the chance to feed at the public trough generation after generation.

Overlapping and duplicating similar public services is totally inefficient and a huge waste of limited taxpayers dollars. Paying rising health and retirement benefits for public employees doing the same job is a bigger issue lately.

Nothing progressive ever happens here on account of too much inbred stupidity resisting any changes.
