2014 Arkansas Code
Title 14 - Local Government
Subtitle 2 - County Government
Chapter 27 - County Intergovernmental Cooperation Councils
§ 14-27-101 - Purpose.
(a) It is the purpose of this chapter to require the executives of all political subdivisions of each county to meet on a regular basis for the purpose of encouraging cooperation by the various local government jurisdictions within each county in the most efficient use of their mutual resources and in the providing of services to their local communities in the most efficient and mutually advantageous manner possible.
(b) It is expected that regular dialogue between the executives of the various local government subdivisions within each county will encourage these governmental units to:
(1) Share facilities, equipment, employees, and services to provide each with a mutual benefit to the advantage of all governments within the county;
(2) Explore the use of joint purchasing and buying agreements to purchase goods and services in an effort to achieve economies of scale that would not be possible without mutual cooperation; and
(3) Identify the areas of duplication of services so they may be eliminated to the maximum extent possible.
