    Cooperative merging of public services

    I'm looking to find information/data on Cooperative Merging of Public Services (excluding merging with Counties). In other words, merging Law Enforcement or Fire Protection services between 2 or more local municipalities (Town/Village/City). A bonus is if the information pertains to communities within the State of Illinois or surrounding Mid-West States. The information might include pros & cons, approach/methodolgy, etc. HELP!!!

    Thanks!

    The Cities of Menasha and Neenah (WI) merged their fire departments about 10 years ago. Also, the Villages of Little Chute and Kimberly (WI) merged their police departments about 15-20 years ago. All indications that I am aware of show that both are working out very well.

    As I type this, the City of Appleton, WI and surrounding Grand Chute Township are seriously studying merging their police departments, too.

    You might want to talk with all six munis.
