Michigan Municipal Services Authority

The MSA, also referred to as a "Virtual City," was created to encourage best practices, teamwork and inter-local cooperation between municipalities and school districts. Collaboration between local units of government, to get the most out of the citizens' tax dollars, has been a hallmark of the Snyder administration.

Created by inter-local agreement, the 12-member authority oversees the development of shared city services between Grand Rapids and Livonia. The agreement allows the communities to collaborate in the delivery of services such as information technology, finance and accounting, payroll processing, and health care pooling. All appointees serve a term expiring at the pleasure of the appointing authority.
