The Town and Village of New Paltz have been granted $49,500 to study shared services and consolidation.
"The project will consider all potential governance models and make recommendations on ways to improve efficiency and reduce taxes."
Congrats to our local elected leaders who worked hard to make this happen - Kitty Brown, Terry Dungan, Pete Healey, Toni Honkanson, and Shari Osborn. Congrats to the fabulous grant writer Nikki Koenig Nielson. Former Village Deputy Mayor Michael Zierler said the grant Nikki wrote was the best one he had ever read.
Now what? Gadflies will be watching closely as this process unfolds -- and hoping it happens quickly.
