The Michigan Municipal League today (June 6, 2012) launched three new blogs about city operations, digital innovations and the importance of private and public investment in communities. These blogs are part of the League’s key mission to serve as the one clear voice for Michigan communities.
Read a news release about the blogs here. The League’s Anthony Minghine, associate executive director and chief operations officer; will write a regular blog called “City Ops” about the practical things that cities deal with on a daily basis. The League’s Rob Ferrari, director of digital strategies, will write the blog “inKNOWvate” about how messaging and technology can generate stronger community engagement, identity and support. The blog “Communities Count” by the League’s Arnold Weinfeld, director of strategic initiatives and federal affairs, will focus on why it’s vital to invest in Michigan’s communities.
While these three blogs are new, the League has been blogging for years, including a legislative blog called Inside 208, and a blog about the eight assets to creating vibrant communities, called 21c3 (Center for 21st Century Communities.

The Michigan Municipal League has received numerous inquiries about the status of the League’s proposed natural gas purchasing program. We are pleased to report that we are continuing to make progress, and are targeting a summer 2012 launch of the program. At the present time we are assembling our consulting team, and will be seeking proposals from gas suppliers in the near future. Please watch our website (mml.org) for further updates as we will be seeking to collect additional information from members that are ready to participate in the program and save money on their energy purchases.
