Shared Services

The recession, the state-imposed property tax cap, and the Governor's most recent property tax rebate plan has put a renewed focus on shared services at the local level. Despite the fact that local governments across the state have been effectively sharing services and consolidating functions or departments for decades, these projects are not often publicized.

The reports below include case studies of recent shared services projects, data on the actual savings realized by local governments through these projects, and resources for local governments expanding their shared services initiatives.
