Durham City, County could combine?

DURHAM Officials confirm to Eyewitness News they have agreed to renew talks about merging the two governments.

County commissioners have added the item to the March 10 agenda.

The last time a possible merger was brought up was back in 2000, but it died before it really got started.

A city council member says there is a merger template that was devised back in 2000, and that is what the two groups will look at.

Some commissioners and council members believe it makes sense to merge during these tough economic times.
