County Efficiency Commission Says Sharing Programs Could Save Townships Money


Sangamon County’s Citizens Efficiency Commission recommends that townships could save money by sharing administrative functions and expenses in their General Assistance programs.

 

Such an arrangement is already in place between Capital and Chatham townships, according to the commission.

 

The panel’s latest recommendation says that while each township would still be responsible for the actual assistance benefits it pays out to low-income residents, the system could be implemented with greater consistency and fewer expenses if administrative functions were pooled.

 

But the recommendation says some changes in state law may be needed to get the maximum benefit.
