LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointments of Phil Bertolini of Clarkston and Dominic Pallone of DeWitt to the Michigan Municipal Services Authority and the reappointment of Stacie Behler of Grand Rapids, to its executive committee.
The MMSA encourages best practices, teamwork and interlocal cooperation between municipalities and school districts. The 12-member authority oversees the development of shared services that any interested community or school district can choose to participate in. The interlocal agreement between the cities of Grand Rapids and Livonia allows communities to collaborate on the delivery of services, including information technology, finance and accounting, payroll processing, and health care services.
“Increasing collaboration between local units of government remains an important focus as we continue to reinvent Michigan, and I thank these appointees for their willingness to serve,” Snyder said.
Appointees will serve on the MMSA at the pleasure of the Governor. Behler will serve on the executive committee for a term expiring Sept. 17, 2018. Their appointments are not subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
