Citygate assisted with the development of a high-level assessment of the feasibility of fire agency consolidation for the Cities of Monterey, Pacific Grove, and Carmel. This study assisted the partners with determining if they should create a joint agency that would be a more efficient governmental organization that will provide improved services at controlled or lower costs. The study also focused on the possibilities to streamline the allocation of resources and equipment so that the most cost-effective apparatus, facility, training, prevention, and safety services are provided. Upon completion of the Final Report, Citygate was retained to provide guidance as the agencies decided whether to proceed with consolidation. The agencies have successfully consolidated.
