Municipal Management Studies

A diagnostic service that assists local officials in defining opportunities to strengthen their local governments. Once defined, specific strategies are developed to ensure that opportunities can be effectively captured. Best management practices that have been successful elsewhere will be tailored to meet individual needs and implemented with follow-up assistance. These management improvement projects address a specific and focused scope of services that are defined by the municipality.

The study may focus on a particular unit, division, department, or the municipality as a whole; it may focus on the consolidation of departments or departmental functions (i.e. town/school, DPW, public safety); or the feasibility of regionalization and outsourcing options for the municipality. HRS also identifies fundamental operational weaknesses, recommending various alternatives to improve efficiencies and effectiveness, and advising on the best procedural approaches to implement change. Human Resources Services, Inc. has conducted a variety of studies including police, fire, public works, recreation and parks, water and sewer, facilities management, general government, school administration, public utilities, libraries, and more.
