City of Milton Georgia Terminates Services Contract

The City of Milton Georgia terminates its services contract and will now be run by its own City employee’s.

When Milton Georgia became a city and was formed in 2006, a private management company was brought in to manage the transition and control the day to day functions that are vital of any city bureaucracy. The company, CH2M Hill, out of Denver, Colorado, provided the city staff positions, except public safety, city manager and city council.

The reason for the termination started to take hold when the economy turned downward. The city’s contract called for a lump sum payment of 7 million dollars due each year. Unfortunately, with less revenue due to falling property taxes, the city of Milton was looking to trim the budget.
When the city of Milton tried re-negotiating the contract with C2HM Hill, the company advised that the contract was non-negotiable. Coupled with that, there were automatic escalations for each additional year the city did business with CH2M Hill, to the tune of 8.2 million for the year 2011, with no increase in performance or services by CH2M Hill to the city of Milton.

Miltons total budget was approximately 17 million this year. With the removal of the private management company, Milton is now run by it’s own citizens, who in this author’s opinion, make the finest employee’s. What are your thoughts?
