So, You Think You Know the Municipality Authorities Act?
The Municipality Authorities Act ("MAA") is the most referred to source of information regarding the day-to-day operations and management of Pennsylvania municipal authorities. However, often, the answer to a question regarding a municipal authority's operations or management may not be readily clear from a cursory review of the MAA.
Also, certain issues municipal authorities deal with on a regular basis are not addressed by the MAA. The purpose of the webinar will be to address issues in the MAA and a few related laws, such as reorganization, board member appointments, municipal authority rules/regulations, and fiscal matters.
This session will:
Provide insight on day-to-day operation and management issues that are addressed by the MAA and those that are addressed by other statutes
Cover the reorganization process (including board appointments - when they can be made, when terms expire, etc.)
Discuss voting conflicts and proper procedure for board members
Address the proper scope of municipal authority rules and regulations
Explore the proper conduct of meetings and how to avoid problems that often arise in connection with such meetings
Analyze conflict issues for board members
Who should attend?
Municipal authority managers, staff, solicitors, and board members - anyone that is involved in municipal authority operations or management from an administrative, legal, or policy perspective.
