City County Compact

Problem

Like in many areas of the country, the City of Dayton and Montgomery County have not always worked together effectively to make government work faster, fill in gaps and improve customer service.

Solution

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley has helped lead the effort to enter into the first ever City County Compact with Montgomery County to align priorities and leverage both government’s resources. Through the Compact, 5 specific initiatives have been chosen for 2014-2015, including projects in education, workforce development, public safety, criminal justice and environmental quality. By publicly declaring the Compact’s goals, the governments will be held accountable for measurable results.
