Commission Member Says Metro Government Deserves Closer Look

A member of the panel that will make recommendations on a possible move toward “metro government” in Springfield and Sangamon County acknowledges the long-standing resistance to the idea… but notes that railroad consolidation languished for decades, and now it’s moving forward. 


Joan Walters is the former budget director under then-Governor Jim Edgar, and is part of a Citizens Efficiency Commission group that went to Indianapolis this week to study how merged government works there. 


Walters says the committee noted a number of benefits from consolidating government operations… but says it has not made a final decision on whether to recommend a renewed push for metro government here.
