Government officials are saying the most significant opponents to consolidation of services like fire departments and dispatching are the employees themselves. This comes despite their assurances that any reduction would come from attrition, not firings. If you are a government worker, do you believe them? Would you feel threatened if your department was being merged with similar services in a neighboring community? You can comment here or send me an email at
