Appendix E Meeting Calendars

The New York State County Wide Shared Services Initiative was designed to reduce property taxes & help lower the cost of local government.

Once a plan is created that demonstrates saving across several jurisdictions, the County may be eligible for a one time match of the savings that result from the new actions implemented as a result of the plan.
