The good, bad, and ugly of intergovernmental cooperation.  What works, what doesn’t, and why some tools are never presented. This session will discuss planning issues that arise from the different objectives between city and county planning and the intergovernmental cooperation used to address them.  There will be a brief history of some of the tools used in Kansas to assist in intergovernmental cooperation and a deeper discussion on how those tools have affected planning efforts for both the City of Salina and Saline County along with thoughts on other tools that may be effective.  Finally we will discuss some of the political pressures that cause the ebb and flow of intergovernmental planning.
