Fiscal and Service Implications / Phase Two / Roadmap

Questions related to fiscal and service implications in sharing arrangements should be addressed in Phase Two of the Roadmap to Develop Cross-Jurisdictional Sharing Initiatives.

Examples of issues to consider:

  • Does the plan achieve a balance between increasing efficiency and effectiveness?
  • What are existing and potential funding streams that can assure adequate and sustainable operational funding?
  • Will public health essential services be provided in a manner that meets or exceeds current levels of performance?
  • Are there issues related to uneven levels of local taxation to support public health services among the jurisdictions involved that need to be addressed?

Resources to help answer these questions can be found below the line.
