HACKENSACK, NJ -- Bergen County is aggressively pursuing more shared services agreements with municipalities. The latest, effective Wednesday, officially authorized shared services contracts with the Boroughs of Alpine and Wallington which allow the borrowing of county-owned emergency and non-emergency equipment, as well as the sort-term rental of a county-owned street sweeper. The agreement with Alpine will also provide vehicle maintenance and repair services, as part of Bergen County Executive James J. Tedesco and the Board of Chosen Freeholders’ vision of offering County services to Bergen County’s 70 municipalities to increase efficiency and provide savings to taxpayers.

"We are excited to establish yet another shared service agreement and look forward to partnering with more Bergen County municipalities for the benefit of the people we serve,” said County Executive Tedesco.
