Municipal Services Committee Chair: Peter Souza, Town Manager, Town of Windsor

“Sharing Resources, Services, and Expertise”

The mission of the Municipal Services Program is to help towns and cities save tax dollars and enhance operating efficiencies.

As part of its 2010 Reorganization, CRCOG made Municipal Services a separate functional department.  Municipal Services now encompasses three distinct functions within CRCOG: Municipal Service Sharing (including Solid Waste Activities) , the Capitol Region Purchasing Council and the Connecticut Regional E-Government Initiative.

Municipal Services Committee
The CRCOG Municipal Services Committee consists of First Selectmen and Mayors, Town Managers, and other municipal officials who are responsible for the administration of local governments. Committee representatives are appointed by the Mayors and First Selectmen of CRCOG member municipalities. 

Meetings are held most months on the third Tuesday at noon at the CRCOG offices in Hartford, CT.  Meeting notice/agendas and minutes are available on the Municipal Services Meetings page.

Acting under the auspices of the Policy Board, the Committee provides programming direction to CRCOG staff in support of the Municipal Services mission. As required, the membership appoints subcommittees to assist in its work.

Webinar Series Summary:

With the right tools, a supervisor can lead, inspire, and motivate. Without proper training, the opposite can be true. . . and the reverberations can be felt throughout the organization.

Enter the Effective Supervisory Practices Training Series. Based on the ICMA bestseller, this six-part webinar series is an opportunity to bring practical supervisory training to your jurisdiction without the high costs of hiring consultants.

This interactive webinar series features the editor, chapter authors, and professional trainers who will demonstrate the principles covered in Effective Supervisory Practices (5th edition) and its companion study guide. Designed as a primer for new supervisors and a refresher for experienced ones, this series is a must for any jurisdiction looking to lead change, improve customer service, or strengthen communication between supervisors and staff.
