Municipalities and School Districts can save money by sharing the cost of services. School Boards and local governments contract out services such as Field Maintenance and Paving and Snow removal. Often times, these governing bodies act independently of each other, even though they serve the same areas. However, municipalities and school districts within the municipality can sign agreements to share the cost of services, ensuring that both entities are using the most competitive services available. Sharing these services could result in much greater savings annually for each governing body.
