Schoharie County Highways Shared Services/Consolidation Study - An Overview of Current Operations and Analysis of Options

Schoharie County engaged CGR to study options for improving efficiency in the highway services provided by the 22 municipalities in the county. CGR catalogued the highway inventory and operations of each local government and analyzed 2 sub-regional models for improving efficiency. The first explored merging 2 town highway operations, and the second the potential for the county to assume a town operation. The cost savings in the town-town merger were insufficient to justify the loss in operational efficiency but the county-town model (based on the county and Town of Blenheim) identified considerable savings potential. The 2 models will help local communities as they consider ways to streamline their highway operations.
