Municipalities and utility agencies are increasingly looking for partnerships, collaborations and regionalization efforts to decrease costs, increase efficiencies and better utilize resources for their constituents and rate payers. Shared Service agreements can optimize the services and resources that cooperating agencies have in place. Intermunicipal Agreements can provide a legal, long-term framework for communities to better serve their customers and residents. Walden has led the effort to craft such agreements among dozens of governmental agencies and utility providers, saving millions of dollars in costs to tax payers and rate payers. Walden can help you get more out of less through creative partnering and effective agreements.

Public-Private Partnerships

Walden engineers and professionals have brought together public agencies and private funding to create beneficial relationships and projects.  As lending, grant and other funding sources become more scarce, utilizing private-sector resources can help municipalities, utility agencies or other public sector organizations stretch tax dollars and rate payer dollars.

Utility Feasibility Studies

Can establishing a new or expanded utility be helpful?  In many situations, yes it can!  Walden can investigate the feasibility of using a utility framework to address drinking water, water quality or stormwater (MS4) challenges.  Walden experts will review regulatory and jurisdictional permissions and craft business cases for the proposed level of service and expected revenues and other proceeds.  Walden can then determine break-even or profitability expectations and identify related challenges and how to overcome them.  Often, a utility approach can be a more equitable means of providing services (fee for service) rather than an increase to tax burdens (sales or property taxes).

Grant Writing

Walden’s Grant Writing team has helped dozens of municipalities pursue and win funding for a variety of essential projects. We actively monitor Federal and State grant programs to identify funding opportunities with reasonable chances of success to help cash-strapped municipalities move forward with projects that benefit their operations and communities.
