Local Policy: General

State law prescribes the various forms 'Public Power' utilities can take, and federal and state law govern on a variety of issues. It is important that local policymakers understand this broad framework, where they fit into it, and the areas where they set policy.

The information contained in this section of the website can help paint this picture. As always, MMUA staff is able to provide insight on a wide variety of topics, and may be able to point out potential pitfalls that may attend a policy under consideration.
