Municipalities must remain prudent in establishing their “new normal” and look for ways to reduce costs and at the same time be more efficient. Inevitably, the conversation will turn to shared services and regionalization.

The search for efficiencies along with cost-cutting measures to help balance budgets is an ever-present reality for almost every municipality and city government.

Shared services/regionalization provides municipalities with a great opportunity to balance their budgets and stretch the services they provide.

blum is a key thought leader in this area, working with a number of municipalities to consider ways to maintain or improve customer service while reducing costs.

To be successful it is important to establish a structured environment within and/or between municipalities, one which creates common standard operating procedures that can lead to realistic, measurable success. Defined metrics and expectations of services levels should also be put in place. Now add appropriate technologies that allow the combined operations to function more quickly and reliably, and measurable improvements can be made. blum can work with you to develop these protocols ultimately delivering success to your municipality, but more importantly to your residents.
