Support For Consolidation

Many New York residents favor consolidating several types of public services, and there is majority support for merging others. Public transportation, road and highway maintenance, and park and recreational programs are areas where residents see a value in sharing or merging services with a neighboring town or city. A majority, 57%, agrees there is potential for consolidating prisons. A similar proportion, 56%, also thinks the consolidation of public libraries in their area would be worthwhile.

Please tell me if you think your local government should or should not consolidate with a neighboring town or city for each of the following services (*Question not asked of New York City residents).
