Formation of Authorities and Commissions

In recent years, costs of constructing and operating water, wastewater, stormwater and solid waste utilities have become unmanageable for some municipalities, particularly in high-growth areas or those with overlapping jurisdictions. As a result, many communities have decided to consolidate their utilities into regional systems, or to close down municipally operated facilities and purchase services from private or neighboring municipal utilities. We have assisted a number of communities in developing and implementing their regionalization, privatization or divestiture plans. Our analyses encompass a review of managerial, financial, engineering and legal requirements, and take into account political considerations and the need to maintain service to customers.
