Town Emphasizes Value of Sharing Equipment and Services
The Town of North Hempstead hosted an Intermunicipal Workshop on May 25 at the Harbor Links Golf Course clubhouse for municipalities within the town, including villages, special districts, school districts, fire companies and libraries. The stage was set early on for a major focus of the gathering, sharing equipment and services to attain greater economies of scale. The Harbor Links parking lot was a veritable heavy equipment Jurassic Park with the showcased "available to share" equipment dwarfing the cars parked around them.
