Re: League Ordinance and Shared Service Agreements Libraries Updated
Today, May 22, 2014, your League of Municipalities is pleased to announce a significant upgrade to our online Ordinance and Shared Service Agreement libraries. Both libraries have been redesigned and reformatted to make it easier for you to navigate and more quickly find the information you are seeking. Some of the new functionality includes the ability to search both libraries by category or do your own keyword searches.
The Shared Service Agreements (SSA) Library has been expanded and updated with hundreds of new Shared Service Agreements covering a wide variety of services that can be implemented to deliver services more efficiently at a lower cost to help you save tax payers money.
Please note that the Ordinances and Agreements are actual documents adopted by New Jersey municipalities and are provided as received. The individual documents are not necessarily endorsed as best practice models by the League, but are provided as a valuable tool to help guide you in the creation of your own documents. We recommend you use them as a framework for your municipal attorney and governing body to draft an ordinance or shared services agreement that is specific to your municipal needs.
We invite the League’s member municipalities to continue submitting copies of their ordinances and shared service agreements that deal with current topics of interest to other New Jersey municipalities.
Visit the new libraries now by visiting www.njslom.org/bureau/ordinances-ssa.html.
And, when you are ready to explore implementing interlocal shared services, visit the League’s Interlocal Advisory Center resource page www.njslom.org/interlocaladvisorycenter.html
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
