Shared Services

County leaders are in the process of hosting shared service panel meetings with leaders from the municipalities and school districts within county borders.

These panel meetings are a requirement of a new law enacted as part of the State Budget that requires county executives, managers, and board chairs to lead a panel comprised of all city, town, and village leaders to create county-wide shared services property tax savings plans.
These initiatives are an opportunity for NYSAC to leverage this work with our colleagues in towns, cities, and villages to demonstrate local government leadership in our communities across the state.
To support this work, NYSAC is collecting the information being generated by these panel activities and making that information available here to assist other counties.
