Manitou was tasked with updating its study to provide timely and fact-based data as the process of planning for a merger of the two agencies continues.

In October 2017, Manitou, Inc. delivered its final report, “An Analysis of the Operational Efficiencies of and the Feasibility of Consolidation, Merger, or Sharing of South Orange and Maplewood’s Municipal Fire Protection Services.”

In late 2020, Manitou was tasked with updating its study to provide timely and fact-based data as the process of planning for a merger of the two agencies continued. The supplemental report documents areas where changes have occurred and provides updates to steps taken toward implementation.

The report can be found here.

The South Orange and Maplewood Joint Exploratory Committee on Fire Services anticipates hosting a community meeting in late July with Manitou, the Governor’s Shared Service Czars and New Jersey Department of Community Affairs.
