Akron and Newstead have agreed to support a grant application with the Akron Central School District for funds to help initiate a statewide
program of sharing services.
Newstead Supervisor Donald C. Holmes said there have been ongoing discussions between the three boards concerning sharing of computer resources and services.
The school district is seeking $30,000 under a state provision of funds to support shared services.
"This is an excellent effort by all three parties," said Akron Mayor Michael F. Charles.
The Newstead Town Board and Akron Village Board approved the agreement Monday night.
