City of St. Louis and St. Louis County Intergovernmental Collaboration Study

The study examined nearly all service delivery areas within the City and the County governments. The goal of the study was to identify initiatives that have the potential to create financial savings for both governments or enhance existing service levels for the citizens in the St. Louis region. It is our opinion that substantial opportunities exist in a variety of areas. We are encouraged that as we shared our findings and recommendations with both leaders in both the City and County, some of our findings and recommendations are already being discussed and studied for possible implementation.City County Intergovernmental Collaboration Study PFM
