Greenburgh, Dobbs Ferry could share services
Greenburgh has expressed interest in sharing police services with Dobbs Ferry and a vote Tuesday night made it one step closer to becoming reality.
The Dobbs Ferry Board of Trustees voted to apply for a $100,000 state grant to study how the village and town could consolidate some police services.
Dobbs Ferry and Greenburgh already share a SWAT team, marine unit and a drug and alcohol task force. The grant would be used to reveal duplicate police services within both communities and demonstrate how changes could save taxpayer dollars.
Both the village and town would have to pay $5,000 each if the state approves the grant.
Dobbs Ferry worked with Irvington earlier this year in studying the possibility of sharing services. However, that collapsed in Irvington due to residents? concerns.
Greenburgh will hold a similar vote Wednesday night on whether to apply for the grant or not.
