Mike Releases Solutions Instead of Studies Framework

According to NBC29, City Council has spent nearly $800,000 on studies in the past two years. On Friday, Mike released his framework to avoid this spending and use local talent. Mike outlined five principles that will guide his work at a Councilor when considering studies:

1. Avoid studies that might delay or substitute for a solution
2. Avoid studies if the advice can be generated by staff
3. Where possible, obtain volunteer local expert advice
4. Where possible, update prior studies rather than authorize new ones
5. All things being equal, choose pilot projects rather than studies

You can read the entire framework here. The framework also caught the eye of local media and was covered by the following outlets:
