Almost sixty years after Connecticut abolished its county governments, there’s a new push to reduce municipal spending through regional cooperation. Historian Bruce Clouette will review the history of Connecticut’s former county system and how the important roles of local governments have changed over time during the February installment of Conversations at Noon. Following Clouette’s talk, the Connecticut Network’s (CT-N) Diane Smith will moderate a panel discussion on current efforts to promote regional cooperation. This installment of Conversations at Noon at the Old State House is free and open to the public thanks to the support of Connecticut Humanities. Learn more here.
