MAYVILLE – The effort to further identify and review inter-municipal shared services opportunities in Chautauqua county begins today.
During his 2016 State of the County address, Chautauqua County executive Vince Horrigan mentioned that he would create a Regional Solutions Commission as a way to identify and assess shared government service proposals.
The commission will hold its first meeting Thursday at 10 a.m. in the training rooms at the office of emergency services in Mayville.
The commission will be chaired by Chautauqua County Legislator George Borrello (R- Irving).
Several other government and community representatives will also serve on the commission, including Jamestown development director Vince DeJoy, Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce President Todd Tranum, and Chautauqua County Labor Coalition chairman David Wilkinson.
The Regional Solutions Commission will focus on the areas of public safety, infrastructure and local government as it facilitates public forums, identifies regional initiatives, and develops initiatives into proposals for implementation.
According to Horrigan, Thursday’s meeting will provide an overview of the commission’s goals and include presentations from guest speakers. The meeting will be open to the public.
