At the Special Districts Summit/East held July 20 in Detroit, e.Republic* Chief Innovation Officer Dustin Haisler spoke about the special districts landscape.

There are some key aspects of being in a special district, he said, whether that's a port, sewer treatment plant, park district or airport — and Haisler unpacked some of the trends in the space, including what's happening today, the behavioral and tech shifts that are occurring, what to anticipate and plan for as special districts move into the future, and next-gen tactics districts can equip themselves with as they navigate.
