FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Dec. 7, 2017

OPEB Bills Represent Missed Opportunity

LANSING, Michigan - The following statement is from Dan Gilmartin, CEO and Executive Director, for the Michigan Municipal League:

“Last night’s legislative retreat from the issue of broader OPEB relief and reform represents a colossal missed opportunity, leaving many communities with an unsolvable fiscal problem. As stated following the release of the task force report in July, the League and its 500 member communities hoped that the work of the task force and subsequent legislative efforts would culminate in a real solution to address one of the biggest financial threats to cities across Michigan. It did not happen. 

“The League and its members remain committed to developing comprehensive reforms that balance the desire to manage costs while maintaining a quality municipal work force. It can be done. We will continue to advocate for real change. The citizens of Michigan deserve it.”

For additional information, contact the League’s Matt Bach, director of communications (810) 874-1073 (cell); (734) 669-6317 (office) and mbach@mml.org.

Michigan Municipal League is dedicated to making Michigan’s communities better by thoughtfully innovating programs, energetically connecting ideas and people, actively serving members with resources and services, and passionately inspiring positive change for Michigan’s greatest centers of potential: its communities. The League advocates on behalf of its member communities in Lansing, Washington, D.C., and the courts; provides educational opportunities for elected and appointed municipal officials; and assists municipal leaders in administering services to their communities through League programs and services.
