Earlier this year, Dinolfo convened a Shared Services Panel to formulate the proposal, which she said has developed 40 new shared service agreements in order to generate the savings.
The final plan has also identified 62 existing shared services in Monroe County, including the City/County 911 Center, Consolidated Civil Service Administration, and the Monroe County Central Library System, which have currently created more than $33 million in savings each year, the county said.
“Monroe County has always been a statewide leader in working with our local government partners to protect taxpayers, a commitment that continues stronger than ever today,” Dinolfo stated. “After extensive preparation, we have produced a plan that will build on the strong foundation we laid previously for the sharing of services in our community. I thank our Shared Services Panel, which included representatives from every town, village, and city in Monroe County for their hard work and unanimous, bipartisan approval.”
The panel held three public hearings, then submitted the plan to the County Legislature for review, prior to finalizing the proposal.
The county’s consolidation of services plan was part of a New York state budget requirement.
