Letters: Cities can save us money – amalgamate

Get rid of the unnecessary burden of duplication of service

Editor, The News:

Well hello, Maple Ridge Mayor Nicole Read and Pitt Meadows Mayor John Becker.

My suggestion is that you two hold a public gala for all the residents of our two cities and ask all us taxpayers to watch you have a legal coin toss about amalgamating our two cities into one and getting rid of at least half the unnecessary burden to both Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows taxpayers.

Our communities are within walking distance, by the way.
