SNOCOM-SNOPAC Consolidation Discussions Project
SNOCOM and SNOPAC have formed a Joint Task Force charged with developing information and materials necessary to allow the SNOCOM and SNOPAC Boards and their member agencies to make a decision as to whether SNOCOM and SNOPAC should consolidate in some manner.
 
The Joint Task Force is advisory to the SNOCOM and SNOPAC Boards. The Joint Task Force has been meeting since January 19, 2016 and is supported by the Executive Directors of SNOCOM and SNOPAC. Since May, the group has also been supported by an independent third-party facilitator.

Project Status:
 
  • No decision has been made whether or not to consolidate SNOCOM and SNOPAC.
  • The primary purpose of the project is to develop information necessary to allow the SNOCOM and SNOPAC Boards and their member agencies to make an informed decision as to whether SNOCOM and SNOPAC should consolidate in some manner.
  • The Boards of both SNOCOM and SNOPAC have committed that should consolidation occur, no layoffs will be made in the transition to a consolidated agency.
  • The Joint Task Force is charged with delivering options for consideration by the Boards, including:

1. An assessment of what the situation will be if consolidation does not occur, in terms of service levels, staffing and costs, and
2. A proposed approach to consolidation and an assessment of what that means in terms of services, staffing and costs.

  • The information gathering process is expected to last through 2016. Any decision to consolidate will be made no earlier than 2017.
  • Member agencies of SNOCOM and SNOPAC will have access to all work products of the Joint Task Force as they are developed and forwarded to the SNOCOM and SNOPAC boards for consideration.
  • Any decision to consolidate will be made consistent with the interlocal agreements governing the two agencies
