NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – New Hanover County and the City of Wilmington are talking consolidation.

The two local governments are doing some research, according to Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo. He tells us he spoke to county commissioners Monday night about working together on shared services like parks and planning and zoning.

But it won't be easy - the creation of the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority was the last consolidation work by the two groups.

Mayor Saffo says it's time for elected leaders from both governments to meet and decide how they can improve service to the tax payers.
