Through an initiative from the State of Michigan's Economic Vitality Incentive Program ("EVIP"), local governments developed a plan to consolidate, coordinate and cooperate with other local units in an effort to reduce expenses for providing various services to their residents. Some of the measures plan for a reduction in cost to provide the service. Others allow for an enhanced level of service that might not have been possible without cooperation by various units.
The plan also includes a listing of any previous services consolidated with the cost savings realized from each consolidation and an estimate of the potential savings for any new service consolidations being planned.
