Constantly Running Geoprocessing Service to return attributes of polygons that a point falls within

I have been requested to create a geoprocessing service that returns attributes from 10 different (and somewhat complex) polygon layers with the input being a lat/long. I'm pretty new to this area of ArcGIS so sorry if this is a bit of a ramble.

The only way I know how to do that is by creating a python script that will be run start to finish each time, then share this as a geoprocessing service. The current script does this.

1. Creates a feature layer for each polygon dataset

2. Does a select by location on each of these polygon layers

3. Does a search cursor for each of the polygon layers

4. Return the results

This process works, but is on the slow side ~4seconds. We would like to get it under 1 second if possible. Most of the time appears to be in creating the feature layer, so I was wondering if it is possible to create a service that has those already created then just needs to do the search by location part. Or to create a script that constantly runs and waits for a call before returning results.

Thanks for any pointers.
