State Representative Arnold Simpson has suggested that the Kentucky Association of Counties begin a dialogue among its members on the possibility of consolidating the 120 county governments in the Commonwealth to reduce costs. The Covington Democrat says he’s not sure he agrees with those who contend the idea would never fly because no one wants to give up their unit of local government…

Simpson says it’s prudent to explore consolidation and KACO is the right organization to spearhead that discussion.
