MEXICO — The Mexico and Rumford boards of selectmen will meet at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28, for an update from New Hampshire consultants Municipal Resources Inc. about consolidating services.

They will meet in the Calvin B. Lyons room of the Town Office.

Mexico and Rumford have been meeting since June to discuss ways the two towns could merge municipal services.

In September, Municipal Resources provided both towns with a proposal to put together a comprehensive study on the subject. The boards of selectmen approved the proposal.

John Madigan, manager for Mexico and Rumford, said Friday that a group from Municipal Resources Inc. will visit departments prior to the 5:30 p.m. meeting.

“They’ll be meeting with the police chiefs, with the Public Works departments, the town clerks, assessors, and with the selectmen of each town,” Madigan said. “That’s the first phase of what they’re doing. Later in the day, they’ll meet up with the selectmen to go over their findings and where we go from here.”

Madigan said there is no end date for Municipal Resources Inc. to complete its study.
