Center for Cost Effective Government Seeks to Consolidate Districts »

LIPADovetailing upon the 2012 report by the Long Island Index on the proliferation of the hundreds of taxing districts on Long Island, the Center for Cost Effective Government announced on Thursday, July 5 that it will be reaching out to community organizations throughout Long Island to assist them in efforts to consolidate or eliminate superfluous and expensive special districts.

Over 150 civic associations and chambers of commerce will receive letters from the Center this week to determine if community leaders within these locales have interest in initiating a grassroots petition drive to place the issue of consolidating sewer, garbage, water or fire districts up to a referendum.

The Center for Cost Effective Government is a not-for-profit organization founded this year with the purpose of creating one of the state’s first “action tanks” to actually help implement the numerous cost-saving ideas promulgated by various “think tanks” throughout Long Island and the state. One of these think tanks, the Long Island Index, under the umbrella of the Rauch Foundation, issued its 2012 report last week, highlighting the impact the superfluous separate taxing districts have in making Long Island one of the least affordable regions in the nation.

The Index stated: “Private services to residents through so many different forms of government has advantages and disadvantages. It may allow for better tailoring services to needs of residents, but it may also work against efficiency as so many units of government cannot achieve the economies of scale that a larger service provider could.”

In 2007-2008, the state legislature initiated a study entitled: “The New York Commission on Local Government Efficiency and Competition,” which culminated in a law passed in 2009 which purportedly made it easier for citizens to directly pursue consolidation of districts via referendum. As civic leaders have discovered, however, it still remains very difficult logistically to get through the process. It is a lengthy, labor intensive and often costly path.
