Town Reports serve to communicate important information to town residents. It is used as an effective and informative tool in promoting an understanding of local government.
MMA judging criteria for the annual town-report contest include cover design and layout; logical arrangement of material; presentation of statistics and data; summaries of the town's achievements and evidence of local planning for the future; and practical utility of the report, which enhances the citizen's understanding of town government.
The Massachusetts Municipal Association is a nonprofit, nonpartisan association that provides advocacy, training, publications, research and other services to Massachusetts cities and towns.
