Increasingly, many Massachusetts cities and towns are considering regionalizing functions of local government but are unsure of how to proceed. We are pleased to invite you to a conference designed to answer these questions, sponsored by the Franklin Regional Council of Governments, MARPA, and the Division of Local Services.
This day-long conference on September 3, 2009 will feature hands-on tools and practical presentations from a broad spectrum of current municipal collaborations. Participants will learn how to begin the process of collaboration, how to fund shared services and hire shared staff, and will receive template contracts, budgets, and agreements that can be brought home.
We have designed the workshop to be easily accessible and affordable, and we hope you can join us! Registration materials will be sent in the coming week. Look here as well for more information.
