Abstract:

CGR completed a study in 2008 for the Village of Lake Placid and the Town of North Elba that evaluated opportunities to expand shared services between the village and town to reduce costs and share them more equitably. The study focused primarily on parks, public works and administrative services, but also addressed options for police and courts. The study found that the village and town already have some unique and long-standing cost-sharing arrangements that could provide the template for expanding cost sharing between the highway, water and sewer departments.
