A Study of Shared Service Opportunities for the Village and Town of Cobleskill, NY

The Village and Town of Cobleskill in NY’s Adirondack region received a state Shared Municipal Services Incentive (SMSI) grant to identify options for increased service sharing or consolidation. CGR’s report describes options in 3 key categories that could lead to increased efficiency and/or cost savings. The categories include sharing services in 4 functional areas (planning, code enforcement/zoning, court and administrative services); alternatives for providing police and water/sewer services; and full consolidation by becoming a city.
