Who Provides Services on Long Island?

A report written by Center for Governmental Research (CGR), explores the complex structure for providing governmental services on Long Island.  More than most places, New York State has a patchwork quilt of governments providing services to taxpayers. Nowhere is this more obvious than on Long Island.  A new resource developed by the Long Island Index can help residents see and better understand this patchwork quilt of service providers – including special districts. For the first time, the boundaries of all local government entities providing services are displayed in one place, along with information about how to reach the provider via telephone or Internet and when elections are held. The CGR report describes how this complex system came together.
