Any savings from merger?

Regarding any savings associated with merger, that has not been a primary focus. The focus has been to maintain high quality of service to all residents which many involved in developing the merger plan have interpreted to mean maintaining the same high level of service. There are no plans to eliminate any personnel upon merger. The plan is to take everything that is being done by the Village government and adding it to the Town government. Will there be any efficiencies gained? Yes, most likely, but without eliminating jobs, they will likely not result in significant savings. This is why elected officials are not claiming any savings and all of the discussion centers on the explanation of how taxes will change for the Village and the TOV.
