State Gives Out $13 million In Consolidation Aid

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan has announced $13 million in grants to local governments and agencies under a program that encourages consolidation of services to increase efficiency.

The state Treasury Department announced 12 grants Tuesday under the Competitive Grant Assistance Program.

The department says the program "helps offset costs associated with mergers, consolidations, inter-local agreements, and cooperative efforts for local units, authorities, and school districts."

The largest grant of $5 million goes to the Michigan Municipal Services Authority to continue development of a cloud-based finance and personnel management system.

Dearborn is getting $3.95 million for consolidation of emergency dispatch services with Dearborn Heights and Melvindale. And Marshall is getting $1.32 million for a program to share services with Calhoun County and state police.
