Town Savings

The Town of Camillus, Onondaga County and several municipalities will share a $6.4 million reward from the state for finding cost-cutting ways to share services. The state money matches what the county saved last year through several initiatives undertaken in response to the state’s mandate to look for ways to consolidate government. State lawmakers in 2017 passed legislation pushed by Gov. Cuomo to create local shared services panels among municipalities.

One of the projects is to include the towns of Camillus in the county’s Employee Benefits Association saving $437,699, the governor reported.

Under the state legislation, certified savings from the state-mandated process would be matched with state money. These funds will be set aside to mitigate future cost increases. Many thanks to Supervisor Mary Ann Coogan and County Executive Ryan McMahon for leading the charge on this.
