Tompkins County Shared Services Initiative

A Countywide Shared Services Initiative was enacted by the State as a part of its 2017-18 Budget.  The legislation has required the creation of a Shared Services Panel to develop and ultimately approve (or reject) a plan.  All Tompkins County mayors and supervisors are required to be on the Panel.  As the law allows, we have also invited representatives of schools, who have the option of participating.  The legislation also directs the County Administrator to serve as the Panel’s chairperson. The Panel must submit a Plan to the County Legislature by August 1st,.  In turn, the Plan must be returned to the Panel and approved or rejected by September 15th.  There must also be three public hearings, and opportunities presented for input by all collective bargaining units of all of the Panel members.
