Governmental Structures Committee

All citizens seek efficient and effective local government entities. The committee's role is to review examples of various modified governmental structures around the region and state and seek to understand the opportunities and obstacles that each model exhibits. At the heart of the review of different governmental structure is the impact of change to the organization - both good and bad. Research indicates that each successful change in governmental structure came during a period of natural transition (i.e., loss of key personnel due to retirement, election, or job change). Reorganization seems to work best around these natural transitions. The committee continues to survey city and county officials about perceptions and job roles and responsibilities.
