I knew there was a National Organization (NVOAD.org) and I knew there were state and substate regional organizations called VOADS, but the local government version is new to me. See this article about a COAD in Scottsbluff, NE.
I am intrigued about their idea of involving the “voluntary, faith-based, civic, fraternal, business, non-profit, and school-based organizations” via one mechanism. In my experience, dealing with each one of those groups is challenging!
I would like to hear from readers on this matter.
