Trustee Adams read the following statement with regard to the new Shared Services agreement with the Town of Babylon:

“As many of you are aware, we are living in a society that is connected technologically through the internet. We receive and give information instantaneously and have come to regard that as the norm. As a resident, trustee, and business owner in Babylon, I realize the importance of accurate and immediate information in our social media conscious world.  Social media has become a way of life for so many in terms of current up to the minute facts for our information, entertainment, and safety.  With that in mind and a desire to improve communication with the residents and visitors in Babylon Village, a Village of Babylon Facebook page was created to ensure that our residents are always aware of everything that they need to know in the Village.  To achieve this in a professional, cost effective manner, the Village entered into an Inter-Municipal Shared Service agreement with the Town of Babylon.  Shared Services are something that has been discussed by Governor Cuomo and it is imperative that all governments begin to participate or local funding could be in jeopardy.  But aside from the Governor’s statements on this, this agreement with the Town has saved the Village a tremendous amount of money.  The inter-municipal agreement covers professional services for social media production, design, and full operation.  This is achieved by the Communications Department at the Town of Babylon in cooperation with the Village.  The gentlemen who were assigned to the Village are Town of Babylon employees.  Their salaries, insurance, benefits, and workmen’s comp. are paid by the Town.

Mayor Scordino assigned me to oversee communication for the Village so I have been working with the Town Communications Department on this project.  We have had countless meetings to discuss design, overall layout, demographics, etc.  Programs were put in place to handle content, photos and scheduling of posts.  There is constant monitoring by the Communications Department, as this is not a 9:00 to 5:00 job schedule.  The gentlemen are on call whenever I need assistance or advice.

This Facebook page is not only designed to keep our residents informed but is also there to promote Babylon Village for our commercial area.  This exposure will be a benefit for businesses and real estate values as well. We are in the process of printing business cards to promote the Village Facebook page and will be advertising the page via Facebook to increase Village of Babylon exposure. The gentlemen working for us are creative, professional, and present in a positive manner that will highlight the many wonderful aspects of our Village.

I would like to thank Mayor Scordino and Supervisor Schaffer for entering into this agreement and to additionally thank Mayor Scordino for placing me on the Suffolk County Shared Services Committee for Technology.”

Mayor Scordino acknowledged the amount of time and effort Trustee Adams put into this and commented that the Village of Babylon has already gotten 1,310 ‘likes’ on Facebook.
