How would you change local public services?

My proposal is that for smaller problems like localised flooding, public disaster preparedness should not be the preserve of central or local government agencies, but a core capability of communities. Using social networking, risk information, resource mapping and recovery teams, communities could lead on situations like flooding, drawing on government resources when required & available.
