The attached request from the President of the Volusia League of Cities (VLOC), Councilmember Billie Wheeler, requests support or comments regarding the proposal to merge the two entities, VLOC and Volusia Council of Governments (VCOG).

Background Discussion
Several officials have discussed the redundancy of services provided by the two organizations.  In addition, there were some concerns expressed that only one member of a municipality could participate in VCOG.  That representative is typically the Mayor.  In an effort to provide efficiencies of services and to promote inclusivity, a taskforce was organized and developed the recommendation that is before you for consideration.  Many municipalities have already discussed this issue and expressed their support for implementation; the balance are considering it at a future council meeting.

Recommended Motion  
To support the concept of merging VCOG and VLOC.
