In 2010, the MMTA Board of Directors developed the Service Award to recognize MMTA members whose commitments to the Association go beyond the call of duty and promote our mission to provide our membership with the tools needed to meet the diverse challenges facing them by offering education, services, continuing professional development and ethical standards. We congratulate our three very deserving 2017 honorees: Paul Linn, Linda Poole, and Lorraine Jackman.

The City of Grand Haven has conducted a survey of water and sewer rates and has graciously shared the results with the MMTA.  More than 130 local units participated in the study!  The Excel spreadsheet tallies the results, provides contact information for participants, and includes basic graphics and other related information.

Grand Haven's purpose was not to perform a formal rate study including financial and engineering perspectives.  They were simply trying to answer the question: "How much does our "average customer" pay per month versus other Michigan communities?"
