There are a few agencies that operate within the city along with the entire county. Instead of duplicating these services the City Commission and the County Fical Court have taken a jointly funded approach. This allows one agency to act on the behalf of the two governing bodies at a reduced cost to citizens. By removing redundancies in personnel adn equipment these agencies operate at a cheaper cost to both the City and the Fiscal Court.
