In this era of increasingly scarce resources, budget shortfalls, and more competitive grant programs, the concept of sharing municipal services takes on considerable significance. Triad Associates, working with Cumberland Development Corporation, lead municipal partner Upper Deerfield and community leaders from the participating municipalities, will  in this study, explore the current status of shared services in the region, collect and analyze data, point out potential for new and/or expanded shared services, encourage communication and action on shared services and develop consensus for a common agenda and action steps needed to turn the report into valuable shares services wherever possible.

Therefore it is the mission of this project to work closely with the municipal leaders and officials of these towns who have historically, in less formal ways, shared services and kept services and costs to a minimum, to make recommendations that may formalize some existing informal sharing of services and lead to timely, implementation new additional shared services that will save money for the municipalities and their taxpayers and/or enhance the level of service for residents and serve as an examples (best practices) for other communities in the State to follow.
