Local Government in Onondaga County, NY - Preliminary Baseline Review: Section I (Who Does What & What It Costs)

Consensus – the Commission on Local Government Modernization – was launched in 2014 as a partnership of SYRACUSE 20/20, CenterState CEO, the County of Onondaga, the City of Syracuse, FOCUS Greater Syracuse, the League of Women Voters of the Syracuse Metropolitan Area, the Onondaga Citizens League and the Homebuilders & Remodelers Association of CNY, with the express goal of shaping a vision for more effective and efficient governance across Onondaga County. As a precursor to identifying and evaluating modernization options, CGR completed a “Baseline Phase” review of existing conditions across all local governments countywide. The review is intended to establish a shared information foundation for the Commission, local government stakeholders and the broader public, and to provide a “data source” for the Commission to draw on as it moves into analysis and consideration of modernization options. The review is not intended to be the full universe of data the Commission will consider during this process, but rather a “jumping off” point for more detailed discussion.
