Intergovernmental Affairs

As the regional governmental entities in New York State, counties administer and deliver many programs and services that cross levels of government. The Intergovernmental Standing Committee addresses issues that arise from these cross jurisdictional endeavors. Amond the resolution topics recently addressed by the Intergovernmental Standing Committee are elections (primary dates and costs), indigent defense services, department of motor vehicle operations, crude oil transportation, and a constitutional convention.
