Given the recent thoughts out there on government consolidation... including Dan Onorato's idea that local municipalities could be consolidated along school district boundaries... and the governor's idea that the number of school districts should shrink (wait, has anyone put those two ideas together to see what it ends up with?).... Governing covers some recent news from Indiana where aparently they have decided against local government consolidation. And this is a state that is used as a model for how Indianapolis/Marion County merged to some degree its city and county functions. So it's not an easy thing anywhere.
