The Town of Brookhaven has developed an innovative planning tool that will not only redesign the government of the second largest town in the State and provide meaningful results to its constituents, but also provide a model and catalyst for government reinvention and best practices statewide. The Municipal Consolidation Efficiency Plan, aptly named Brookhaven United, was designed in collaboration with partners to reassess services, redesign government models, and redeploy service delivery protocols across municipal boundaries. The plan was awarded the sole $19.7 million MCEC grant in recognition of the visionary solutions and their potential to impact governments throughout the state.  This session will review the key components of the Brookhaven United plan and discuss how they can be implemented in Counties, Towns and Villages throughout the Capital District.
