Agencies In Operation NE'vV YORB: How many gov- ernmental ao'encms are in opera- t[o in Mason County conducting the affairs of it.s cities and towns ? How nmch progress, if any, has been made in recent years to- ward re.lnc'n the n:',mbec of these bodies ? A NI,]IV I{ICPORT on the snb- iect. isue] by the Department of Commerce. makes possible a com- na.risbn of the governmental struc- "11re locally wth that found in )thor comnmnities. The data was gathered from all oarts of the country as part of the 1962 Census of Governments. It trnderscore the fact that com- munity affairs arc directed only in part by county and mmucipal gov- ernments. In most places, some of the fnnctions are under the control of school districts or special districts, vhich have authority over partic- ular phases of local activity. In Mason Countv. the ,.orr shows, there are now 25 units of government in operation, all of them with property taxing power. THEY COMPRISE the county government itself one municipal government, no township, 10 fis- cally separate school districts and 13 special districts. The number is 11 percent less than the 28 units that were coun- ted locally in 1957, When the pre- vious Census of Governments was taken. By way of comparison, in the United States as a whole there was a reduction of 11 percent in the five-year period. The Pacific States had a rise of 2 percent while the number in he State of Washington went. up 4 percent. THE FIGURES show that the trend, in most communities, is toward a streamlining and simplif- ication of the governmental pro- cess. Since 1957 the number of units of government in the Un- ited States declined from 102.392 to 91,236. Mtmh of the cut is attributable to the consolidation of school dis- tricts, which were reduced about one-third in the five years. They dropped from 50,454 to 34,678.
