Costa Mesa explores sharing services

July 22, 2011 |  8:18 am

Costa Mesa is looking at partnering with Newport Beach and Huntington Beach to share some city services. 

Costa Mesa may share the SWAT team, emergency dispatch, animal control and other services, Costa Mesa city officials said Thursday, according to the Daily Pilot.

Many of the ideas have been publicly discussed this year as possible options for the cash-strapped city.

In response to a lawsuit by the Costa Mesa City Employees Assn., an Orange County Superior Court judge ruled Monday that the city could outsource its services only to other public agencies, at least until the case is heard.
