MORE Municipality Survey

PLEASE Complete this survey by Tuesday June 14th at 5pm.  

As many of you are aware, MORE (Municipalities Organized for Regional Effectiveness) was active from 1999 to 2007.  The non-profit organization was created as a tool to benefit the municipalities of the CMRPC region.  At its most active, MORE accepted assessments from its participating communities based on population.  Staff from CMRPC assisted the organization with joint procurement of such goods as electricity, fuel oil and office supplies. Additionally the organization hosted legislative networking events, workshops on current events, and educational forums.The non-profit organization went dormant for a period of years beginning in 2009. At the March CMRPC Quarterly Managers meeting, with many town administrators, town managers, and executive secretaries present, action was taken to revitalize the organization.  The following were elected as the organization's officers:
  • Ron San Angelo, Town Manager Southbridge (Chair)
  • Ted Kozak, Town Manager Northbridge (Vice Chair)
  • Brian Palaia, Town Manager Oxford (Clerk)
  • Heather Lemieux, Town Administrator Barre (Treasurer).
To reconstitute the organization, MORE will hold its Annual Meeting on June 15th at 11:30am at CMRPC's Union Hall.

This survey is to gather your thoughts on the most useful purpose for the organization going forward.  Please take a moment to provide your input by May 31st.

Thank you for your time.
