About the Study

The Process

CGR will spend time on-site meeting with key stakeholders, interviewing officials and department heads, and gathering data regarding budgets, operations, and governing structures. The resulting analysis will provide the Village of Prospect with insight into the feasibility and impact of governance options including and up to dissolution. Throughout the process, residents will be asked to provide feedback via the project website and multiple public meetings, culminating in a potential referendum in March 2015.

Study Committee

The process is being overseen by a Study Committee composed of Village residents and a representative of the Trenton Town Board, with assistance from the Center for Governmental Research (CGR). CGR is a nonprofit management consulting organization with expertise in government management, public finance and municipal consolidation processes. Options developed by CGR regarding this study will be presented to the Study Committee in a public meeting.


The Study Committee and CGR encourage public engagement in this process. Please submit your comments, questions and other feedback by clicking here and visiting the public engagement page.
