Monroe County To Partner With West Irondequoit Central School District In Shared Service Agreement

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo and West Irondequoit Central School District (WICSD) Superintendent Jeffrey Crane announced a shared service agreement that will allow the District to utilize the County’s fueling station in Irondequoit. The station, conveniently located at the Van Lare Wastewater Treatment Plant, will now serve as a primary fueling location for the District’s fleet of vehicles.

“Local governments within Monroe County have a long history of working together to benefit residents,” said Dinolfo. “Government should always strive to innovate and operate as efficiently as possible and one way to accomplish this is by entering into shared service agreements. This new partnership with the West Irondequoit School District is another way the County is working collaboratively to ensure cost savings for residents while delivering the best possible level of service.”

Monroe County is considered a statewide leader in shared services with over $20 million in annual cost savings. To levels of government such as School Districts, these partnerships are vitally important and they create savings by providing access to exclusive services without prohibitively costly overhead. WICSD is the second school district to participate in the shared service agreement, the first being the Wheatland-Chili Central School District. Under the terms of the agreement, the District will reimburse Monroe County for the fuel used and will benefit school district residents in cost savings.

“We are excited for another opportunity to share services, and therefore reduce spending, with another government agency. Through the fueling agreement with Monroe County we anticipate annual savings in excess of $12,000,” said Crane.

Monroe County and WICSD are exploring the possibility of further collaboration that could provide additional savings for District residents.
