For as long as I can remember, there’s been a certain beer commercial whose tag line goes “this one’s for you.” This blog truly is for you—it’s your turn. This is the place where the League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust (LMCIT) will offer tools to help you do your job safely while faced with budget cuts, fewer hands to help, and rising service demands.
This is the place to see what other Minnesota city public works departments are field- and road-testing. When possible, when we hear about something great, we’ll put it up here. (And by the way, if you’re doing something great—let us know).
From my years of working in parks departments, I know that blogs aren’t the usual way we get things done in public works. But interesting times call for interesting measures. This format allows us to focus on you—just you—to get right to the point and share things as they happen.
I hope you’ll join us. I hope you’ll help us make this blog a success. You can subscribe on this page to get updates or follow us on Twitter at https://twitter.com/lmcpipeline (your Twitter feed will alert you when something is new). So here we go—welcome!
