The Efficiency Advantage: Stories of Collaboration & Innovation in Local Government November 2, 2015, 8:30 a.m. to Noon University of Illinois Student Center East 750 S. Halsted St. 3rd Floor, Illinois A & B Chicago
Local governments across Illinois are feeling the pain of state budget cuts and reduced tax revenues. At the same time, residents and business owners continue to expect and deserve high-quality government services and infrastructure. The question facing almost every municipality, county and special service district in Illinois is: How can we continue to provide high-quality services in this extremely challenging environment?
Join us Monday, Nov. 2, 2015, for “The Efficiency Advantage,” a forum highlighting ways that local government leaders have adapted successfully to new financial realities by implementing reforms. Whether by cooperating with neighboring governments to deliver a shared service or by using data-driven performance indicators to identify operations improvements, local governments across Illinois are deploying innovative techniques to deliver high-quality services and infrastructure more efficiently.
The event will feature:
