Beginning July 1, 2008, the Commissioner of Social Services shall work with localities with 2007 provisional population estimates of 20,000 or less to begin consolidating administrative operations with neighboring localities to achieve general fund savings of $1,000,000 the second year in administrative reimbursements to single jurisdiction local social services departments."

(This amendment requires the Commissioner of Social Services to work with localities to achieve administrative savings of $1.0 million in fiscal year 2010 by consolidating the administrative operations of single jurisdiction local departments of social services in localities with 2007 provisional population estimates of less than 20,000. Based on the 2007 provision population data, 45 localities with populations less than 20,000 operate a single jurisdiction local department of social services. Efficiencies can be achieved through the consolidation of administrative activities.)
