I am seeking information on how departments have started the ball rolling to consolidate their counties into larger better serving departments. (example: sacramento, tualitan valley, etc.)

I am mainly trying to get the information to better understand the rumors of the county I work in. As far as I can tell its all talk right now about a countywide department, however if I can help serve the public by helping this cause I'm willing to gather as much info as I can.

Thanks for your time.
