Brantford Mayor Kevin Davis is sending out strong signals that he wants the city to amalgamate with its neighbour.
Davis served notice that he wants a resolution to review a shared services and amalgamation process to be discussed at a future city council committee meeting.
The motion, which has yet to be discussed, would have city staff look at “the process by which Ontario municipalities may be restructured through amalgamation, including a list of steps required to prepare a restructuring proposal to support the amalgamation of the City of Brantford and the County of Brant
Earlier this year, city council passed a resolution calling for the resurrection of a city-county joint services committee.
Brant County councillors, however, turned down the request, saying both municipalities already share a number of services.
The county says it’s looking to see what kind of arrangements could be made with other neighbouring municipalities, including Oxford and Norfolk counties, Hamilton and Waterloo regions.
