Local Government Consolidation

Page Menu

Our faculty are recognized nationally for their customized services to local governments that are considering functional or full governmental consolidation. We identify and evaluate service delivery issues for cooperation between governments through a functional consolidation. This provides officials with objective, detailed information for decision making.


In the case of full consolidation, our faculty provide assistance related to all aspects of the process, including

  • helping leaders evaluate the most important issues involved in a change

  • studying all the factors and consequences

  • facilitating focus groups and information sessions

  • drafting a new charter if the recommendation is to proceed


We help your local government and consolidation commission learn

  • about the consolidation process in general

  • how full governmental consolidation would affect their communities

  • how to craft the charter for a proposed consolidation
