Ducking duplication of services, and saving taxpayers' money through amalgamation with Duncan, will be debated by North Cowichan council next month.

Wednesday saw North Cowichan councillors adopt Councillor Al Siebring's motion to start exploring amalgamation avenues on Feb. 1.

He suggested council support striking a joint committee with Duncan council to promote shared visions and goals for Cowichanians.

The committee would look at efficiencies by sharing public works, engineering, planning and other services.

The committee would also probe potential savings through amalgamation of North Cow and Duncan, and direct staff to built administrative and governance models.
