TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senators Bob Gordon (D-Bergen) and Jim Beach (D-Camden) that would make it easier for municipalities to study the possibility of merging was signed into law today.
“Sharing services and consolidation have become necessary in the current economic climate. They can offer significant savings to taxpayers and still ensure efficient services. That is why we need to make the process of implementing shared service agreements and consolidations easier, not harder. This legislation will do just that,” said Gordon.
