"The Decade of Local Government" - The CPBB Espresso Blast #2

The next 10 years will most likely be a defining period for local governments, including your own. In a June 27, 2012, Governing magazine article, ICMA Executive Director Bob O’Neill declared this time as “the next decade [for local government] will be a time in which the fiscal woes of federal and state governments will leave local and regional governments on their own, struggling to balance the need for innovation against the necessity of making tough choices.

“It will also be a decade in which local government will lead the way in developing creative solutions to extraordinary problems. There are a number of reasons to be optimistic about this coming decade of local government.”

A New Environment

The recession may officially be over according to economists, but unlike the normal ebb and flow of the past, the picture is dramatically different than anything managers have experienced during other economic cycles. Local governments are realizing that they will not simply return to the status quo that existed before the recession.

At the Center for Priority Based Budgeting, we're all about creativity and innovation in all forms. Whether it be through expanding and improving our core concepts of Fiscal Health and Wellness through Priority Based Budgeting, migrating our Fiscal Health tool to a web-based Fiscal Health Diagnostic Tool, or finding transformative new ways to communicate how local government communities are implementing these revolutionary tools and concepts, we're never satisfied with the status quo in this Decade of Local Government.

With this in mind, we're rolling out the second of many breakthrough CPBB Video Espresso
Blast(s). The Espresso Blast is designed to provide a fundamentally new platform for the CPBB to explore innovative new trends in local government and further exhibit how CPBB communities are successfully transforming the way they deliver services and conduct business. These videos are short, concise and chock full of entertaining and valuable content.

Our first Espresso Blast, titled "How it All Started", explored the genesis of the Center for Priority Based Budgeting and the formulation of our core concepts. This NEW video enthusiastically dives deep into the enormous opportunities available for local government communities in this new era.
