Title:Illinois Government Research no. 58 1984: Small-City Councils and their Part-Time Experts: Dealing with Attorneys and Engineers
Author(s):Hamman, John Arden; Williamson, Kent; Sokolow, Alvin D.
Subject(s):Illinois government
State government
Abstract:This paper examines the working relationships between councils and their part-time attorneys and engineers, using data from a study of four small municipalities in rural Illinois. Our study found that, while the small governments are in fact highly dependent on the outside expertise, the independent status of the consultants causes frequent tension and disagreement. The sources of tension, however, are not the same for attorneys and consultants.
