Someone told me that the city of Pittsburgh and Allegheny county are going to merge into one city. Is there any truth to this?

If so it would make sense. Louisville KY and Jefferson County merged. Only one govt. to govern the area.

makes a heck of a lot of sense.

Not sure I'm keen on the idea. If this happens, then we will all have to pay the higher city wage tax (currently 3%) and property tax, among other city taxes that we don't pay out here in the suburbs. Our cost of living is almost certain to increase as a result. So in that case...I give it a thumbs down.
