The Contract City Concept: How Public/Private Partnerships Can Save Michigan Cities

End Wednesday, June 05, 2013 1:00 PM

Join FEE and the Mackinac Center in welcoming Oliver Porter to an Issues and Ideas Forum in Lansing, MI.

Privatizing city services is a necessary tool in any municipalities’ toolbox for both reducing government waste and ensuring city growth. Innovators and entrepreneurs across the country are exploring the concept of “contract cities,” which use public-private partnerships to reduce costs while improving city services. The purpose of this event is to examine the possibilities and sand-traps of privatization and contract cities in Michigan.

Join us live or online — watch the live video webcast here at noon on June 5th.

Lunch is free and is included with reservations.
