The materials contained here describe three outstanding examples of municipal cost-cutting or productivity programs which have been implemented in Tennessee cities. They are curbside solid waste collection, in-house minicomputers, and risk management. In addition, a description of the cost-cutting and productivity improvement services available through MTAS is included. These descriptions were developed as a hand-out to supplement presentations made at a session on municipal cost-cutting at the 1979 Annual Tennessee Municipal League Conference.
