"ALBANY — Members of a panel studying how to shrink the number of local governments in the state said Friday they hope a new report that found government costs far higher on Long Island than in a similar area of Northern Virginia will help them make their case.
“I think it's a compelling case when you compare counties that are very similar and find one has fewer units of municipal government and fewer school districts and also has lower property taxes,” said former Lt. Gov. Stan Lundine. He is the chairman of a commission appointed by Gov. Eliot Spitzer in April to study how to consolidate local governments. The panel is slated to make recommendations next year."
