Team PA’s Annual Report Stresses Work on Municipal Consolidation

Team PA put out their Annual Report recently and, in it, they highlight the hard work toward passing a municipal consolidation bill this year, SB 1429. The report states:

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.
