Italian term or phrase: servizi pubblici locali a rilevanza economica
As far as I understand these are services that may also generate income ... but I cannot write "local public services generating income" ... so I'm asking you: is there a correct translation of *servizi pubblici a rilevanza economica*?
Thanks

economically significant local public services
Explanation:
In a general economic context, you can just use economical. After all it is quite probable that they are subsidised and making a loss, but are economically significant because of the capital invested, the turnover etc.

"economico" is only a specifically profit and loss thing in Italian when the reference is to "il conto economico".
