COLUMBUS – State Rep. John Rogers (D-Mentor-on-the-Lake) announced today that $100,000 was approved by the State Controlling Board to implement a shared services model that consolidates resources and improves efficiency among all governmental political subdivisions in Lake and Geauga Counties. This regional cooperative will partner-up local educational facilities, including the Lake County Educational Service Center, Auburn Career Center, Perry Local Board of Education, Wickleffe City Schools, Village of Timberlake, and Painesville City Schools.

 “As a former mayor, I recognize the value in funding initiatives that will benefit our local government,” said Rep. Rogers. “Local governments make decisions that affect every person in the community, and it is in our best interest to find ways to improve efficiency and effectiveness among our political subdivisions. Needless to say, I am very pleased to see funding for this project and am certain we will implement a successful comprehensive shared services model.”  

The Lake/Geauga Shared Services Regional Cooperative project is just one of 26 Local Government Innovation Fund programs that will receive funding from the state. The Local Government Innovation Fund program was established to provide financial assistance to Ohio’s political subdivisions for planning and implementing projects that are projected to create more efficient and effective service delivery models within a specific discipline of government services for one or more entities. Projects are expected to facilitate improved business environments and promote community attraction.
