UNION GAP, WA-- The city of Union Gap is still looking to form partnerships with other local governments to provide essential services to the people who live there.

Union Gap works with other governments in the region to provide services like transportation, fire protection and traffic control.

They said they do this to effectively use tax-payer dollars for core services that every city needs.

The city manager said the primary goal is to provide people who live in union gap with a solid foundation.

"I think while the focus sometimes becomes on cost savings, I think municipal government really needs to focus on effective and certain delivery of those services so that the population can become safe," said city manager Rodney Otterness.

Otterness said the city is also looking at their internal departments to make sure their money is spent in the best way possible.

Union Gap and the Yakima Fire Department already have a strong fire protection service partnership.
