Expect two collaboration stories this week. One that is already finished and slated for Tuesday (no guarantees, this is the news business after all), looks at a technology network that could link municipalities throughout Northeast Ohio. Tallmadge thinks it will allow it to save more than $100,000 over five years.
The other story is an update on the county's effort to collaborate on paving projects. The numbers are just now coming in and most say they expect savings but can't say how much. County Engineer Al Brubaker expects to do it again next year on an expanded basis.
