An interesting story now posted on spokesman.com relates that bleak budgetary times have county officials like Spokane County Commissioner Mark Richard and budget officer Marshall Farnell talking aloud about local government consolidation.
Between Spokane County and the city of Spokane, just to be clear. Richard is quoted as speaking specifically about law enforcement activities.
We missed a bet (in my opinion) a decade ago by not approving a unified local government. How odd if a recession puts that option back on the table.
