North Metro Mayors Association (NMMA)

Since 1987, member cities and associate partners have worked together to bring a balance in both public and private investment in the North Metro Area. This collaborative effort has focused on public policy decisions that impact member communities and their constituents. See some of the accomplishments that NMMA has achieved (See 'About Us' above and click on "Accomplishments".)

North American Joint Purchasing Program (NAJPP)

In 2009, NMMA amended its Joint Powers organizational document to permit the establishment of a central purchasing program called the North American Joint Purchasing Program. The primary objective was to achieve the best competitive price in the marketplace on select products and/or services for its members and/or participating community partners. Since its inauguration NAJPP has initiated three public bids for the following products: 1) office supplies, janitorial cleaning supplies and office furniture, and 2) filed marking paint.

NMMA has appointed a management committee comprised of six City managers/Administrators with program oversight and decision making authority. At a recent session the committee identified several additional products or services it will consider adding to the program in the future; e.g., credit card services, engineering, fertilizer, surveying, bulk oil, street sweeping and ice arena products and services.
