city county

News today that the committee* looking at City/County issues has issued its report:

Government for Growth: Forging a Bright Future—Built on Unity, Efficiency, Equity, and Equality—for the People of Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh

For some of the history getting to this point you can take a look at my: Primer on regionalism and local government fragmentation in the Pittsburgh region.

There is also this oped coincidentally from Nashville on Tuesday that mentions Pittsburgh government and reminisces on their city/county consolidation all of 45 years ago. See: The anniversary of Metropolitan government is worth celebrating.

* as disclosure: that would be the committee chaired by my boss' boss' boss' boss, or something like that.
