Village of Avoca (population 946)

Name of service/government operation: Youth Recreation Program

Form of sharing: cost

Services affected: ability to have the program

Year started: 1965

Partners: Village and Town of Avoca

Primary goal(s)/motivation(s): To give the youth of our area things to do in the summer.

What planning process preceded the sharing? unknown

What governance structures and/or agreements are required to maintain this agreement? yearly update during budget time. We must have an agreement with NYSDOH to have a permit to run the program

Challenges: the tax cap has made it diffecult to keep the program. If we have to cut to stay under the cap this service would probably go first.

Benefits: We have over 200 kids involved with the youth sports teams and summer rec program

Impact on budget: minor

Impact on labor: We hire 15 part time helpers to aid and run this program each summer
