V'ville and New Scotland look into sharing services

"It's usually up to the village," Dolin said.

Dolin added the town and village do share an animal control officer, which

saves money.

One area in which the town and village have discussed potential consolidation is the judicial system. Conway said there were talks about merging the two and have town justices handle the workload, but that is not likely to happen until Voorheesville Justice Kenneth Connolly retires.

Connolly is up for re-election in March 2010.

Attempts to contact Connolly to obtain his intentions for the upcoming election were unsuccessful.

"That's an area where there might be some savings," Conway said.
