The designer of public-private partnerships that deliver municipal services in metro Atlanta’s newest cities is recommending that Barrow County officials negotiate a similar multi-year contract for the operation of the county government. Consultant Oliver Porter submitted his six-page report to the county administration on Dec. 6, and the Barrow Journal obtained a copy several days later.
The report says that six companies reviewed the county’s levels of service in areas other than public safety and constitutional offices. And they looked at the departments’ combined spending of $4.7 million annually. But only one of the companies saw enough financial potential to entertain contracting with the county government.
For the full story, see the Dec. 18 issue of the Barrow Journal.
