NORTH ARLINGTON, N.J. — A street sweeper is on the horizon in North Arlington.
The Bergen County Board of Chosen Freeholders on Tuesday authorized a shared services contract with the Borough of North Arlington for the rental and usage of a county-owned street sweeper.
The move is part of Bergen County Executive James J. Tedesco and the Board of Chosen Freeholders’ vision of offering County services to Bergen County’s 70 municipalities to increase efficiency and provide savings to taxpayers.
“I’m proud to bring another shared service contract to North Arlington to help borough residents save money,” said Freeholder Chairman Steve Tanelli.
“So far this year we have passed similar street sweeper contracts with eight towns and vehicle maintenance contracts with 11 municipalities and school boards, with even more in the works.
"As more and more towns sign on, we will continue to see even greater savings for our residents.”
The contract allows North Arlington to use one of the county’s street sweeper vehicles on an as-needed basis.
In September, the Freeholders passed a similar resolution allowing North Arlington to make use of the County’s garage for maintenance and repair of its fleet of vehicles.
