One highway department. One highway department tax rate

 One highway department. One highway department tax rate. That could happen under a town-village merger proposal in development. The merger would unite the five-person Town Highway Department and four-person Village Public Works into a single nine-person highway department responsible for all of the town’s infrastructure. Doing so would remove town- and village jurisdictions, and allow a unified department to assign manpower without limits. It would also create a more equitable funding system.
