Should city government pursue further consolidation with county government? If so, how or in what areas?

Generally, I am for keeping power as close to its source, the People. I support decreasing the cost of government, but generally not if that means ceding our sovereignty to a more distant “consolidation.” What can be sold as greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness might sometimes really only be a new power grab, which should be resisted, rather than heralded.
