City/County Merger to be Discussed on Radio 550

This coming Monday, November 15th, at 10 AM, KTRS AM (the BIG 550) is having Charles Schmitz, dean of the University of Missouri, and an advocate of statistically merging the population of the City and the County, as the guest of highly rated McGraw Milhaven to discuss the merger as it can really happen.

No politics, just straight talk. Please spread the word and tune in.

NOTE: The person sending in the above information as a COMMENT indicated a start time of 10:00 for this discussion. Unfortunately this was the end time of the program. Our apologies if you missed the discussion . . . as we did.

    Lots of "Consolidation" opportunities.

    St. Louis County alone has 92 municipalities. 54 of which are under 5000 population. That is crazy.

    Too many Fire and Ambulance Districts

    Too many School District

    Consolidation allows for a higher use of available resources for less tax dollar.
    Ending the duplication of many overlapping resources would save and improve.

    St. Louis Region could improve itself with Consolidation and merger.
