Cooperation among jurisdictions and consolidation of programs is one method by which economies may be gained, thereby either reducing costs or upgrading quality of programs. One such consolidation which may be considered is the merger of road programs at the local level. Such a consolidation has been achieved by Adams County and the City of Hettinger, North Dakota. This consolidation, which took effect on November 1, 1984, is the focus of this report.
