Central Falls seeks more consolidation of services

Posted:

CENTRAL FALLS – Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee announced last week that the city’s receiver is pursuing cost reductions and increased operational efficiency by consolidating municipal functions and shared services between the city and the Central Falls School District.

State-appointed receiver Robert G. Flanders Jr. signed an order on Feb. 13 creating the Department of Administration and Finance, an office of shared services that will oversee and coordinate all finance and administrative functions, Chafee’s administration announced in a news release.

Flanders has charged his chief of staff with the creation and management of the shared Department of Administration and Finance in phases, taking into account input from stakeholders.

As a first step, the city’s departments of code enforcement and planning are in the midst of moving to city offices at 1280 High St. in order to accommodate the move of the School District’s finance and human resources functions into City Hall. •
