IBTS to provide local government services

In June 2012, the MARC Board of Directors approved a contract with the Institute of Building Technology and Safety (IBTS) that would allow local governments in the region to access building department services. This pilot project will help cities with limited resources control costs for a range of services. MARC is currently exploring other services that could be provided through this model. For more information, visit our shared services page or contact Georgia Nesselrode.
