The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead is considering becoming a shareholder of Wokingham’s adult services trading company.
Optalis Ltd was created by Wokingham Borough Council back in 2011. The Royal Borough is now looking to join the partnership as a shareholder, owning 45% of the company.
If approved, the council’s adult services workforce will be transferred to Optalis Ltd from April 2017.
Cllr David Coppinger, the council's cabinet member for adult services, said: 'It is important that we make decisions now that will ensure we have the resources, staff and expertise to continue providing support and assistance to our residents for the longer term.
'We already work closely with Wokingham on a number of other services and we believe that this decision will only strengthen that relationship and provide a better service for our residents.'
Both councils will decide on the proposal at a joint meeting on Thursday 27 October.
