Rochester, NY – Residents in Seneca Falls will vote tomorrow on whether or not to dissolve their village.
Seneca Falls is one of many municipalities around New York looking at consolidation as a way to cut government costs and reduce taxes.
Charles Zettek is Vice President of Government Management Services at the Center for Governmental Research.
He's been consulting with several governments studying consolidation.
Zettek says the cost-savings depend on the variables in specific communities, such as how various services are provided.
A close vote is expected in Seneca Falls tomorrow.
Residents of Johnson City--outside Binghamton--narrowly defeated a proposal to dissolve last fall. A recounty showed a 40 vote margin out of 42-hundred ballots cast.
