What Is an Interlocal Agreement?
FlaglerLive | December 17, 2013
An interlocal agreement is a written contract between local government agencies such as a city, a county, a school board or a constitutional office. Any time a public service involves the joint operations and budgets of two or more local government agencies, an interlocal agreement must be drawn up and approved by all sides, with each government’s governing body–a school board, a city council, a county commission–enacting the agreement by vote. Interlocal agreements may involve a sheriff’s department providing policing services to a city–as with the Flagler County Sheriff’s contractual agreement with Palm Coast–or a school board having joint operations with a city or a county to operate certain parks, or a municipality and a supervisor of elections contracting for election day services.
