Interior Minister Aryeh Deri has announced his intention to accept the recommendations of the special Commission and approval of the plan of merger of bat Yam in tel Aviv.
According to the plan, will soon be a special government Department for the preparations for the merger, which will be engaged in the financial recovery of the municipality.
Itself the merger will occur in 2023, when the inhabitants of the two cities will choose General mayor.
The plan for the merger of bat Yam in tel Aviv was the result of the work of the Commission created in 2014 at the request of the municipality of bat-Yam. In bat-Yam city hall claimed that the city discriminated against compared to Rishon LeZion, Holon and tel Aviv, and that his financial problems are connected with wrong distribution of industrial and commercial zones.
