The RM of Westbourne and town of Gladstone could use cost-saving advise from the province if area residents agreed to it.  

With a nod from the public, investigation would be carried out in the amalgamation of the RM and town.  Reeve Ed Stroeder feels the joining makes sense, saying it's an ideal long-term plan.  

Stroeder notes an investigation won't necessarily lead into amalgamation.  

The two entities already share several facilities and services, and if they came together Stroeder forecasts savings of about a million dollars over a four year period.
