In December the Michigan Governor Rick Snyder signed into law changes to the Urban Cooperation Act and related statutes. These laws, Public Acts 261, 262 and 263 of 2011, are designed to remove barriers to municipal service sharing and cooperation.
The Michigan Municipal League has put together a one-pager with more detailed information on these changes. As we get into this new year, we hope you will find these changes beneficial. We would love to hear your stories of how these changes work for your community!
