“Re-Centralizing” a De-Centralized Plattsburgh Government

In years past, The City of Plattsburgh under the guidance of then Mayor Clyde Rabideau worked under a system of decentralized management that gave managers the autonomy to manage their departments independently of each other..  In the never ending search for savings, Plattsburgh’s Current Mayor, Jim Calnon is looking to Re-Centralize certain aspects of municipal operations..

Recently, Mayor Calnon has been working with councilors to define a system of financial reporting that allows councilors to have a good understanding of where each department stands, while at the same time, considering the most effective lines of communication between department heads and the Mayor’s Office.. And when it comes to the day to day operation.. Calnon says there are ways they can create economies of scale while still allowing each department to get their jobs done every day..
