The Honorable Ivan Allen
Mayor of the City of Atlanta
City Hall
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mayor Allen:
.i\,~
May I add my congratulations (to what I hope have
been many) at your decision to press the issue of
\
consolidation. As you well know from our conversations,
the CIP Workshops, and the "Atlanta" article I am
100 per cent behind this reordering of our metropolitan
governments.
If there is anyway I can be of help to you
in moving this effort forward, I am eager and willing.
Our firm has been deeply involved in this area in recent
months through our work with Savannah-Chatham county,
the Muscle Shoals Council of Governments, and the District
of Columbia. We are gaining some measure of expertise
and a deep understanding of the problems of governmental
restructuring.
It seems inappropriate to us because of our past work
for the City and my publically-known views for our firm
to make a proposal for the work now being contemplated
in study ing consolidation. However, we are ready to
provi d e any advice and assistance you might deem helpful
in identifying appropriate firms to carry out the work.
To that end , I have reviewed the qualifications of some
of our competitors ( a difficult task to accomplish without b ias) to see who might do the Cit y and County a good

job. One organization which you might consider is the
Midwest Research Institute.
I asked one of their staff to send me some information
on their activit ie s and abil i ties in gov ernmenta l
organization, a copy of which is enclosed.
If information on other firms such as this would be of
interest to y ou, I will be happy to assemble it and
p a ss it on.
Finally , let me. again offer my time and the firm's time
to assist y ou on this project in any matter y ou might
suggest .
With b est wi s h es ,
