At the merger council, a public call for new city names was made, and as a result, many city names including "Imizu" such as "Imizu City", "Imizu City", "Imizuno City", etc. eventually became the new city. It was decided that the name would be "Imizu City". Shinminato City once belonged to Imizu District.

Initially the merger date2005(17)May 3However, Mayor Kosugi insisted that he would merge only with the four municipalities in Imizu-gun and announced that he would leave the merger council, while Daimon-cho, Shimomura, and Oshima-machi insisted on the merger in five municipalities. , Talks were suspended.

But then2004(16)May 8As a result of a referendum asking whether the merger of the five municipalities of Kosugi-cho was held in November, the number was in favor, so it was late for the originally planned merger date, but merger talks were resumed, and in 5 (2005)May 11Agreed to merge as "Imizu City" in 2005May 2Signed a merger agreement with 5 municipalitiesToyama Prefectural AssemblyAfter the approval ofMay 7The Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications announced in the official gazette. As a result, the city of Imizu was established by the merger of 11 municipalities on November 1 (Imizu-gun disappeared).

  • The following place names have been changed due to the merger[1].
    • (Kosugi Town) Kitano → Kosugi Kitano-To distinguish from Oshima Town Kitano
    • (Oshima Town) Kitano → Oshima Kitano-To distinguish from Kosugi Town Kitano
    • (Kosugi Town) Shiraishi → Kosugi Shiraishi-To distinguish Shimomura Shiraishi. The two areas are adjacent to each other, and Shimomura Shiraishi is called Ohirashiro, Kosugimachi Shiraishi and Koshiraishi, which are also candidates for new place names.[2].
    • (Daimon Town) Honji → Daimon Honji-To distinguish from Shinminato Honji
    • (Shimomura) Sanka → Shimomura Sanka-To distinguish from Kosugicho Sanka
    • (Kosugi Town) Shimojo → Hashimoto Shijo-for distinction from Shimonjo Daimoncho. Hashishitajo was the name of the village before it was merged with Kosugi Town, and it remained as the name of the elementary school and fire brigade.[2].
    • (Shimomura) Kosugi → Kuragaki Kosugi-In "Imizu Kosugi", it was inconvenient because it was misunderstood as the former Kosugi town, so it was renamed to the old place name Kuragaki Kosugi.[2].
  • 20071 Citizen's Charter established.
  • 20073 Citizen's song "Shoot the city brightly" was established[3].

City administration

  • Executor: Minoru Tadokoro (formerlyDaimon TownChief) --From November 2005, 11 to the new mayor appointment.
  • The first mayor: Shizuo Seike (formerlyShinminato CityChief)-November 2005, 11-November 27, 2009
  • Second mayor:Motoshi Natsuno(Former Toyama Prefectural Assembly)-November 2009, 11-(27rd term)

The election to select the first mayor was announced on November 2005, 11, and a vote was held on November 20, and although a close battle was expected, Mr. Kaike was elected with a big difference. Former Mayor Shinminato, Mayor Kosugi, and Mayor Oshima ran for this election, so the former Mayor Daimon was elected as the executive officer of the two who did not run for the former mayors of the municipalities.

The city hall was based on the "divisional hall system," with the offices of each municipality before the merger and the offices in the former Imizu district wide area serving as the branch offices. Until September 2016, 9, the office of the new city was located at the Kosugi Government Building (former Kosugi Town Hall) and the city council meeting hall was located at the Shinminato Government Building (former Shinminato City Hall). Except for Nunome Government Building (former Imizu District Wide Area Office), each government building had an administrative center that received various notifications.

From the beginning of the merger, the integration of city halls has been considered for the purpose of deterioration of each branch, cost reduction, and operational efficiency. In 2011, a revised bill was passed to install an integrated new government office on the city-owned land adjacent to Oshima Central Park in the new development of Imizu (formerly Oshima Town). In anticipation of future reduction in the number of staff, the Oshima Government Building, which is near the integrated new government building and has a relatively short construction period, will be used for the time being, and will be abolished when the number of staff of the main office reaches about 300. About the cloth office building where the water and sewage department is located, it was left as it is.[6].

On October 2016, 10, the integrated new government office was opened, and the new government office, Oshima government office, and Numeme government office became three government offices. Shinminato Government Office, Kosugi Government Office, Daimon Government Office, and Lower Government Office will be abolished[7].
