On May 29, 2012, the Marin Civil Grand Jury issued a report entitled “Pre-Schoolers Learn to Share – Can Local Governments?”. Over the past year, staff has been contacted by the Grand Jury on various local government questions, most recently on the number of special districts in Marin County. Prior to that, staff provided information on successful political consolidations, to which the Grand Jury added other examples of functional consolidation.
The Grand Jury’s research concentrated on the number and variety of governmental entities in Marin County and argued that in such a complex system, that opportunities for increased efficiency and cost savings were present and must be pursued as a fundamental component of public policy.
