Ho-Ho-Kus and Midland Park officials are in the process of negotiating a shared-service agreement to merge both town’s construction departments, according to a recent article in the Record.
The plan, which has not yet been finalized, calls for moving Ho-Ho-Kus’s construction department to Midland Park, and will not impact any services for Midland Park residents, according to Borough Administrator Adeline Hanna.
“They called and asked if we would take over their construction department,” Hanna explained. “There will be no difference in Midland Park. Ho-Ho-Kus residents would see a difference, but we haven’t finalized anything yet.”
Midland Park currently has a shared-service agreement with Ho-Ho-Kus to supply gasoline for borough vehicles, as Ho-Ho-Kus has its own gas station, she said.
According to the Record article, the agreement would save both communities time and money, however, Hanna noted that the details have not yet been worked out.
“It won’t cost the borough anything,” she said.
