In response to the final report of the Organizational Reform Commission (ORC), County Executive Ike Leggett has submitted recommendations to the County Council that support most of the ORC recommendations.
Appointed last July, the eight-member commission’s charge was to help address the County’s serious fiscal challenge by proposing ways to reorganize or consolidate functions performed by County government or County-funded agencies.
The Commission’s 28 recommendations fell into two groups. The first dealt with changes in structure and organization – for example, merging the Park Police force into the County Police force, combining park and recreational services, and consolidating the information technology functions of the various County agencies. The second group addressed changes in process and operations – for example, requiring greater transparency in the collective bargaining process, adjusting the criteria that arbitrators must consider and achieving greater efficiency in the use of Information Technology.
