Spotted: Stronger Together With LMC Policy Committees

From Aurora to Windom, cities from across the state are represented in the annual Minnesota cities legislative policy committee process happening now. Four committees comprised of over 150 city officials are busy reviewing the 2016 City Policies and researching, discussing, and debating what positions cities will stand for next year. This is also when city officials can bring forward emerging issues to potentially be addressed.

 It's no easy task to span the breadth of interests and characteristics that make Minnesota cities special in these policies, but year after year the buy-in of these city officials makes the difference. The results of their work will guide and inform decisions made by League intergovernmental relations staff at the Capitol and beyond, and help shape the city-state partnership that is so important for the health of local government in Minnesota.

See the committee lineup:

Improving Service Delivery

Improving Local Economies

Improving Fiscal Futures

Human Resources & Data Practices

Intrigued? The League's legislative policies webpage has more info. IGR staff are always excited to hear from prospective new policy committee members. Current elected and appointed city officials are encouraged to email to participate next year.
