County Commissioner Director hosts
Shared Services Summit

FREEHOLD, NJ – Monmouth County Board of Commissioners Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the Monmouth County Office of Shared Services, hosted two sessions of the County’s Shared Services Summit at the Monmouth County Fire Academy this week to discuss the benefits of shared services agreements.

“I am proud to say that Monmouth County has developed one of the most successful Shared Services programs in New Jersey,” said Commissioner Director Arnone. “Participating in the County’s shared services program has many benefits for partners such as economy-of-scale purchasing power, a broad range of cost-saving services and commodities, and improved up-to-date systems and equipment.”

“Over the past three years, we have improved our program and added several services that would benefit our partners. Some of the new services include the High-Resolution Aerial Imagery Software (NearMap) and the iTaxMap System,” said Commissioner Director Arnone. “Monmouth County’s Office of Shared Services works with municipalities, police departments, fire departments, first aid squads, authorities, commissions, public schools and institutions of higher learning to provide our partners with high quality services at a fraction of the price.”

The County’s Office of Shared Services objective is to help provide quality services and commodities to local public partners at a lower cost. The County has the ability to share resources, provide more efficient public services and the collective purchasing power to help lower costs and to save taxpayers money.

“I am privileged to say that my colleagues and I have worked hard to reduce and maintain a zero-tax increase in our County budget,” said Commissioner Director Arnone. “We look forward to continuing to work with our municipalities to help share the County’s resources, reduce costs and to deliver a higher quality of services to County residents.”
