Vice President of Government Affairs and Municipal Partnerships at WasteZero, Stephen Lisauskas also serves as a Senior Associate at the Edward J. Collins, Jr. Center for Public Management at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. Stephen Lisauskas has consulted in matters related to municipal business process improvement and distressed city engagements since 2010.

In April of 2016, the Town of Holliston entered a contract with Edward J. Collins, Jr. Center for Public Management. The Center, paid through a $25,000 state grant supported by Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito, will employ experts to evaluate the Town’s long-term capital needs, setting a priority timeline for when each item should be addressed over a period of five years. Additionally, recommendations offered will include a method for funding each initiative in a reasonable, but ambitious manner.

The Holliston project is one of approximately 80 engagements in which the Center will assist municipal governments in 2016. With the aid of the Collins Center’s experts, the Town intends to make the best use of taxpayer resources, improve services, and provide more value to residents of the community.
