The Butler Council has opted to continue a shared services agreement wherein the Borough of Bloomingdale provides all building department functions and inspection services–with the exception of zoning and property maintenance–for the borough.
The agreement, which will continue for another five years, will have identical terms and conditions as the previous five-year contract, Butler Administrator James Lampmann said during Tuesday's council meeting.
“We just take basically what was paid this year and pass it through a percent escalator, which fits within the cap,” Lampmann said regarding the cost of the service.
Councilman Robert Fox said he rarely, if ever, hears any complaints about the agreement.
“This is one of those shared services that is a win-win for both teams,” Councilman Ray Verdonik said. “It all works out well.”
