Mayor DeMaria recently met with the coalition to discuss revisiting the fiscal partnership between the Commonwealth and Cities and Towns throughout the State.

The MMC has become an effective vehicle to address common issues confronting urban core governments and has made significant strides in overcoming the obstacles that hampered past attempts at inter-local cooperation.
