Local Gov Consultants

Local Government Expertise


Move your community forward. 

Simplify. Clarify. Complete. 

Breakthrough bureaucracy. Cut through red tape. Clear the path to completion. 

Sometimes the best intentions are standing in the way of truly hearing what your community has to say, hearing their needs and providing it to them–quickly. Tap into decades of local government experience paired with the ability to move outside traditional channels. Open the door to opportunity and move your community projects forward. 

Local Gov Consultants is a consortium of professionals with vast experience, empathy and a passion for public service. Our mission is to help local governments and nongovernmental organizations succeed where they’ve become tangled up in time and obstacles. 

We know the key to completing the projects your community deserves can sometimes be based on both knowing regulatory requirements and how to navigate them quickly, and with a fresh, outside perspective. 

It’s not about competition, it’s about collaboration. 

It’s not about politics, it’s about public service. 

It’s about listening to your community, really hearing your people, and getting things done. 

Local governments are restricted by rules and red tape–necessarily. However, Local Gov Consultants is experienced enough to navigate through the projects you can’t, or don’t have time for, so that you can deliver the best results to the community that depends on you. 

Let’s get started. 

“Our county department found itself in a difficult situation when the performance of our long-term finance director tailed off during the last year of the their tenure before retiring.  We also had lost another key member of our finance team during this time.  Fortunately, we came across Local Gov Consultants who provided us with an outstanding financial leader who helped stabilize our situation by providing much-needed forensic research, offering suggestions regarding staff performance, and collaborating with our incoming finance director to help slingshot them through a positive entry into our department.  We are very fortunate to have found Local Gov Consultants and would certainly use them again should the need arise.”

“Pete Bales has the unique ability to take a project from conception to completion. He uses his local government experience and knowledge of the Ohio Revised Code to simplify any project. I have worked with Pete on complex projects ranging from lighting a four-diamond softball complex, to an elaborate hillside slide playground, and now working on a multipurpose artificial turf athletic field. He has an outstanding work ethic, is honest, works with integrity and produces great results.”
