League to Testify on Civil Service Reforms Monday
The League of Municipalities will testify before the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee on Monday, August 16, 2010 at 12:30 p.m. on the urgent need for Civil Service Reforms.
For years local leaders have called for civil service reform, as well as other reforms including binding arbitration reform, COAH reform, health benefits reform, mandates relief, revenue replacement funding compliance, flexibility to deal with pension costs, utility costs, disaster and emergency response costs and other costs imposed by factors beyond the control of local leaders, and conformity of any new local caps to a new State spending cap.
With the recent passage of the 2% property tax levy cap it more critical than before that these management reforms are put into place.
