Municipal Partnering Initiative

Village of Glenview, IL

This year 18 Cook and Lake county municipalities came together to discuss the delivery of creative municipal services. The outcome is known as the Municipal Partnering Initiative (MPI), which saves taxpayers money because lower prices are obtained through the collective approach to the bidding process. By approaching the bid as a group entity, officials say savings can be realized for both large and small-scale construction projects that are needed in more than one municipality. ICMA TV takes a look.
