(2009 AUBER Award of Excellence in Publications)

In response to calls for local government reform, the Kernan-Shepard Commission was instituted, and in December 2007, it issued a report (formally titled Streamlining Local Government). Its recommendations contain broad and far-reaching changes to the administration of local government in Indiana. This study attempts to address the potential impat of consolidation on the costs of local government.
