  • coproduction (51): “Understood to mean the joint production of municipal goods and services by the local municipal bureaucracy and the individual citizen-taxpayer, coproduction promises the city lower taxes while maintaining existing municipal service levels. At the same time it promises to expand the role of the citizen from one of mere passive consumption of public services to one of active involvement with the responsibility for the selection, production, and delivery of public services.” (†656)
