The purpose of this publication is to advise municipal officials with respect to the sharing of a joint building by the general municipal government and an electric distribution system. It is an expansion of an article on the same subject that appeared in the Technical Section of the November 1952 issue of Tennessee Town & City magazine.

The information contained herein is oriented particularly toward officials responsible for the general government of Tennessee's municipalities, but it may also be of some value to officials of electric distribution systems.
