MILTON, Ga. – Milton Emergency Manager and Fire Marshal Matthew Marietta, Ph.D., can now add another accomplishment to his impressive credentials – published author of a thought-provoking paper detailing Milton's money-saving, non-traditional and groundbreaking government model.

"Flexibility in Local Government: Using Non-traditional Strategies for Financial Stability," a presentation Marietta and City Manager Chris Lagerbloom gave at the International City/County Management Association's (ICMA) 98th annual conference in Phoenix, Ariz., last October, is now an "InFocus" publication available through the professional group's online bookstore.

As such, it is available to leaders across American and Canadian governments, and will be used to improve municipal services in communities across the country.

"It is one thing to build this model and find success at home," said Lagerbloom. "It is another thing entirely for Matt to streamline it into a guide for one way to be fiscally responsible in today's environment."

The report outlines Milton's non-traditional service delivery model and how it allows the city to reduce costs by contracting services from private companies. Marietta also delves into the types of community connections needed to establish such a successful hybrid and the economic, social and political factors that influenced its genesis.
