Regionalization Movement On the Rise

Regionalization seems to be all the rage these days. In our newly launched Hummel Report today we caught sight of three stories from around the state about the regionalization of municipal services. In Warwick, the Warwick Beacon reports that Warwick and East Greenwich are hitting some snags in the process of consolidating their fire dispatch services. In the East Bay area, a new school superintendent is touting the Bristol-Warren district as a model for regionalization elsewhere in the state. And the Narragansett Times reports that regionalization was the hot topic at a recent debate for General Assembly candidates. The Brown Daily Herald today has a good overview of the regionalization movement and a report on what the state is doing to promote it.
