I would create a fund for the purpose of funding proper dissolution/merger studies conducted by an independent firm,like the Center for Governmental Research (CGR). This would give municipalities looking to dissolve or merge the proper information to then pass on to their voters. The voters can then make an informed decision when voting on a potential merger or dissolution of a government entity such as a village. 90% of dissolution votes fail throughout New York State, a mere 10% success rate, because the voters do not have good, unbiased information to work with in most cases. We have a 75% SUCCESS rate in Chautauqua County because we've insured that third-party studies are done so voters have good information to make an informed decision.
