Onondaga County has released the first draft of its shared services plan.
City and village mayors, town supervisors, and the County Executive all sat down on multiple occasions to hash out ideas for shared services.

They’ve been working on it since June, and Mahoney says the county is required to put the plan online.
57 counties in the state were required to prepare a shared services plan.
A shared services panel is required to approve, modify or disapprove the plan by Sept. 15, 2017.
The plan is to share services across Onondaga County, to make it one entity that everyone can benefit from. All towns and villages will be able to keep their identities, Mahoney said.
A public hearing on the newly announced shared services will be held next Thursday at East Syracuse Minoa High School from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The hearing will allow individuals to see the whole plan and weigh in on it.
