FROM THE PRESIDENT
By Herbert Stiles, Mayor, Elmer

The League has been a long time proponent of greater interlocal cooperation to improve efficiency and effectiveness of municipal government services in New Jersey.

Officials at the local, county and state levels are looking for and finding ways and means to better facilitate joint services among municipalities. Interlocal services have benefited municipalities and saved tax payer dollars.

To address this important issue, the League, in cooperation with the Department of Community Affairs, will sponsor a half-day summit on "Advancing Greater Interlocal Cooperation" on April 5, 2006, at the National Guard Armory in Lawrenceville, NJ.

The speaker panel will include key representatives of the State Legislature, County representatives, and municipal leaders who will provide case studies on interlocal services success stories. Staff from the Department of Community Affairs, including Commissioner Susan Bass Levin, will provide an overview of the technical and financial assistance that can be provided for municipal consolidation.

Make plans to attend this important summit along with your department heads and other relevant staff members. For a complete agenda and registration form, please visit our calendar at www.njslom.org or contact Sue DeLany at extension 11. I look forward to meeting you at our Joint Municipal Services Summit on April 5.
