Administrator Authorized to Establish Shared Services Panel

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

The Legislature, by unanimous vote, authorized County Administrator Joe Mareane to establish a Shared Services Panel and to undertake the tasks assigned to county chief executive officers under the State’s shared services legislation. The law assigns tasks to the Chief Executive Officer that exceed those ordinarily delegated to an appointed official. They include organizing a Shared Services Panel consisting of all mayors and supervisors of municipalities within the county, soliciting input of all collective bargaining units of Panel members, presenting a tentative Plan to the County Legislature for its review, conducting at least three public hearings, securing final approval of the Plan by the Panel, certifying savings associated with the Plan, submitting the Plan to the State, and issuing the Plan to the public.

Administrator Mareane cautioned that it appears it will be very difficult to come up with a good plan within the timetable established in the law, which requires that the Panel submit a plan for the County Legislature’s review by August 1st and finalized by mid-September.
