City and County Commissioners To Initiate Joint Projects

The commissioners of Montgomery County and the City of Dayton say they have identified several projects they’ll be able to work on together. The commissioners say the collaborative efforts, tagged as the Dayton/Montgomery County Compact, will save taxpayer dollars and improve services.

In a statement Wednesday, County Commission President Dan Foley said the city and county are “committed to better serving its citizens.” Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley said partnerships are essential for improving city and county operations.

The Dayton/Montgomery County Compact will focus on five areas, including the implementation of an 800 megahertz, county-wide public safety radio system upgrade, a joint project on building code enforcement, crime data mapping, a regional ‘green initiative,’ and education programs.

Dayton city commissioners adopted the compact during a meeting Wednesday night. Montgomery County commissioners say they’ll adopt the compact at their meeting next Tuesday.
