Evaluation of Potential Governance Structures and Shared Services: Town and Village of Ossining, NY

CGR analyzed the potential fiscal impacts of a range of structural alternatives for the Westchester County, NY community of Ossining, which currently is serviced by town and village governments. CGR examined the implications of consolidating the 2 governments into a single city; dissolving the village and shifting service responsibility to the town; and merging the 2 municipalities into a coterminous town-village. The engagement also explored the potential benefits of more intensive service sharing, short of full restructuring, between the town and village.
