Consolidated city/county governments like Macon-Bibb County can distort population numbers. However... it seems like a very good idea from a cost savings standpoint. Here in Seattle we pays taxes to both the city and the county, many of whose functions seem redundant.

Got Murrieta, the least guessed answer, because it's next to Temecula, a city that has my favorite casino. Now I just need this luck to stay with me until my next round of roulette.
