Team PA’s Annual Report Stresses Work on Municipal Consolidation
Sometimes, collaboration is necessary for survival. For some of Pennsylvania’s small or struggling municipalities, merging or consolidation is the only road to fiscal health and the return to a growing, vibrant community. Yet it used to be nearly impossible to do. Team PA convened 20 organizations to help distressed municipal governments by devising a better way to voluntarily consolidate or merge their services. Six months – and a few close calls later – a successful bill was signed into law by the governor, providing a new, easy, and more direct merger and consolidation process.
Just another step to success in PA’s municipal government system. Thanks, Team PA.
