The Efficiency Study Group was created by the request of both the Town and Village Boards in September of 2014 to examine possibilities for consolidating Village and Town services. The committee used a 2006 report from the Center for Government Research as driving document. They have also conducted interviews with Town and Village employees and have created partnerships with the Council of Mayors and the New York State Department of State Office of Government Efficiency.
The preliminary report involving all aspects of government functions is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2016. In the meantime, findings of the group have led to movement for the consolidation of the Town and Village Courts.
