  • Beyond the City–County Divide: Examining Consolidation Referenda
           Since 2000

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Christopher Acuff
      Abstract: State and Local Government Review, Ahead of Print.
      Despite the relative infrequency of successful city-county consolidation campaigns, local government officials and reformers continue revisiting the possibilities and perceived benefits associated with consolidation. While studies analyzing campaigns for and against consolidation efforts exist, little is known beyond factors at the city and/or county level. For this reason, it is important to dig deeper and explore the differences at smaller geographic levels. Utilizing demographic, geographic, and electoral data, this study examines the factors which contribute to support (or opposition) to consolidation at the voting precinct-level in reform efforts over the last two decades. Results indicate that factors related to higher levels of education, home values, and larger Hispanic populations tend to increase the vote share in favor of consolidation, while areas with larger median household incomes demonstrate lower levels of support. These findings help extend our understanding of boundary change and voting in local referenda in the United States.

  • When Things Go Off the Rails: Leadership Derailment in Local Government

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lauren Dula, Maja Husar Holmes, Willow S. Jacobson, Kristina T. Marty
      Abstract: State and Local Government Review, Ahead of Print.
      Using focus group data, this exploratory study examines beliefs about leadership derailment among local elected officials across North Carolina. Our respondents generally conceptualized derailment as the consequences that had happened to elected leaders, particularly no longer being in office, and identified a range of problematic behaviors that can derail officials. Compared to the private sector, derailment in a public setting can impact a wider segment of society. It can occur when elected public officials violate not only professional but also broader public service values or when they have missteps outside of their governance roles.

  • Small Town, Short Work Week: Evaluating the Effects of a Compressed Work
           Week Pilot in Zorra, Ontario, Canada

      Authors: Zachary Spicer, Joseph Lyons
      Abstract: State and Local Government Review, Ahead of Print.
      On September 1, 2020, the Township of Zorra, Ontario, Canada began a compressed work week pilot project designed to add flexibility for its employees in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Office-based employees who opted into the pilot were given either Monday or Friday off from work and then worked longer shifts for the four remaining days. This field note provides information on the program's design and implementation and reports on the findings of pre- and post-pilot surveys designed to gauge attitudes of workers toward the compressed work week. Results indicate that the pilot was received positively and managed to avoid concerns typically associated with compressed work weeks, namely increased fatigue and staffing challenges. In addition to the evaluation of the pilot, we also provide insight into how organizational scale can aid in the development and design of public sector workplace innovations.

  • Is Florida Really that Interesting' State Geographic Bias in Public
           Administration Research

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Luke Fowler, Dalten Fox
      Abstract: State and Local Government Review, Ahead of Print.
      The authors examine whether there are geographic biases in public administration research. They use a dataset of 557 research articles from top public administration journals in which specific state names appear in the title or abstract. Findings suggest that not only is a mass of public administration research concentrated in four states (Florida, California, New York, and Texas), but specific thematic topics and policy areas are associated with each of those states. In general, this suggests that authors need to consider if continuing these trends creates a blind spot for research bias in the field, where the collective understanding of a specific topic is disproportionately influenced by data from a single state. The broad implications are that how states serve as a research setting should be actively considered by authors.

  • The Road to Routinization: A Functional Collective Action Approach for
           Local Sustainability Planning and Performance Management

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Aaron Deslatte, Rachel M. Krause, Christopher V. Hawkins
      Abstract: State and Local Government Review, Ahead of Print.
      When confronting complex challenges, governments use basic bureaucratic design heuristics -- centralization and specialization. The complexity of environmental and climate issues has drawn recent attention to the ways in which fragmented authority influences, and often challenges, the policy choices and institutional effectiveness of local governments. Sustainability planning and improved performance are potential benefits stemming from the integration of responsibilities across silos. Our central proposition is that institutionalized collective-action mechanisms, which break down siloed decision-making, foster more successful implementation of sustainability policies. We empirically examine this using two surveys of U.S. cities and find evidence that formal collective-action mechanisms positively mediate the relationship between broader agency involvement and more comprehensive performance information collection and use. However, we identify limits to the role of planning in fostering a performance culture. Specifically, cities that have engaged in broader planning conduct less-comprehensive performance management, likely due to measurement difficulty and goal ambiguity.

  • Learning from Cemetery Managers About Citizen–State Encounters and
           Emotional Labor

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Staci M. Zavattaro, Mary Ellen Guy
      Abstract: State and Local Government Review, Ahead of Print.
      Using stories from cemetery managers to make the case, this paper first argues that the emotive component in the citizen-state encounter is as essential, if not more essential, than its cognitive component. This is because emotion creates lasting impressions that are positive or negative. To advance theory building, a holistic framework of the citizen-state encounter is then presented. Data to inform the model were collected through interviews with 35 U.S. municipal cemetery managers, an essential administrative function in local governments. The resulting holistic framework incorporates both affective and cognitive dimensions and accentuates how public officials are the nerve endings of public policy, connecting with the public and bringing government to life. Hypotheses are suggested for testing the model.

  • Flexible Aid in an Uncertain World: The Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal
           Recovery Funds Program

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Philip Rocco, Amanda Kass
      Abstract: State and Local Government Review, Ahead of Print.
      Emergency fiscal transfers to state, local, tribal, and territorial governments have been at the core of the U.S. federal government's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The most extensive of these transfer programs is the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (CSLFRF) program, contained in the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The CSLFRF is not only larger than prior rounds of emergency aid, it was also designed to address a broader series of crises, address pre-existing inequities, and provide greater discretion to public officials in deciding how to allocate funds. In this article, we consider the extent to which this program represents a departure from what some have called “fend for yourself” federalism. We conclude that while the coordinated effort of intergovernmental organizations resulted in a greater measure of federal fiscal activism and flexibility than might have been anticipated, lingering political conflicts and legacies of austerity will continue to inflect the CSLFRF's implementation.

  • Organizational Social Capital and Performance Information use: The
           Mediating Role of Public Service Motivation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Michele Tantardini

      Abstract: State and Local Government Review, Ahead of Print.
      This article examines the mediating role of public service motivation (PSM) between organizational social capital and performance information use. This topic is worth studying since it allows to understand how organizational level factors and individual level traits interact. Using a multiple informant survey distributed to county managers in Florida, this article finds support that organizational social capital is an important predictor of performance information use, and that this relationship is mediated by the role of PSM. The article concludes with recommendations on how to capitalize on these internal resources for the effective implementation of performance management reforms and practices.

  • Managing Performance for Capital Projects

      Authors: Andrew J. Grandage

      Abstract: State and Local Government Review, Ahead of Print.
      This study contributes to our understanding of public performance with original research on Earned Value Management (EVM), a practice used for managing cost and schedule performance for capital projects throughout execution. Recently, EVM has emerged in some states as part of their performance management strategy for major Information Technology acquisitions but research has yet to study implementation. Overall, results indicate that EVM can support proactive cost and schedule management and help achieve performance objectives but that it is not fully embedded into work routines. Findings also illustrate that successful implementation is contingent on several organizational, human capital, and policy variables.

  • An Antiracist Index for State Level Assessment

      Authors: Samantha June Larson
      First page: 236
      Abstract: State and Local Government Review, Ahead of Print.
      In 2020, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security identified white supremacists as the most lethal threat in America. White supremacy is a system rooted in racist policies and ideas that produce and normalize racial inequities. Combatting white supremacism thus requires identification and promotion of antiracist policies, actions, and systemic changes. This study constructs an Antiracist Index comprised of 15 indicators to assess the degree to which American states exhibit antiracist conditions across political, economic, and cultural dimensions. Indices are rank-ordered for all 50 states, from Very High to Very Low scores. Results demonstrate that three indicators—self-defense laws, gun ownership, and support for Black Lives Matter—primarily impact both high and low ranking states. The Antiracism Index thus serves as an exploratory assessment tool which enables state-by-state comparisons, identification of antiracist indicators, and the ability to monitor changes in racism and antiracism moving forward.

           Management: Communicating Goals through the HUD Grantmaking Process

      Authors: Juliet Musso, Christopher Weare, J. Woody Stanley
      First page: 256
      Abstract: State and Local Government Review, Ahead of Print.
      This paper presents an exploratory case study of a performance-based intergovernmental grant program, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) homeless assistance grants to local Continuums of Care (CoC). The goal is to illuminate the mechanisms by which a federal agency may communicate its priority goals to local grant recipients and seek to promote local actions that further those goals. The mixed-methods case study finds that meeting HUD performance targets does not lead to larger awards in the competitive grant process, casting doubt on the strength of incentives provided by the competitive grants. Nevertheless, the grant making process plays an important role in communicating federal priorities. The system performance metrics emphasized in the grant process coupled with targeted technical assistance appear to promote a focus on performance at the local level and play a role in system reform and capacity building.

  • Benchmarking Local Government Services: Applying an Issue-Based Approach

      Authors: Saman Shafiq, Evgenia Kapousouz, Michael D. Siciliano, Jeffrey M. Gawel
      First page: 267
      Abstract: State and Local Government Review, Ahead of Print.
      Conventional benchmarking methods that rely on pre-existing measures may not be best suited for many of the challenges confronting local service delivery. This paper introduces an issue-based benchmarking method and describes the six-stage cycle implemented by a benchmarking collaborative in the Chicagoland region. Each stage of the process is discussed to highlight the approaches and tools used to identify the most salient issues and relevant performance measures. In the final section, we reflect on the changes we made to the process and overall lessons learned that we believe will help others attempting to engage in similar benchmarking efforts.
