Cities & Towns

Our mayors, city and town managers and city councils struggle each year to balance holding the line on property taxes while delivering effective municipal services. As a former Mayor, Dan McKee knows just how challenging this can be. For that reason, he has made the Lieutenant Governor’s office a resource to municipal leaders.

With the support of many municipal leaders, Dan introduced enabling legislation to empower municipalities to create savings and efficiency by regionalizing emergency dispatch services.

Currently in progress, Dan is creating savings for municipalities and the state by revising Rhode Island’s property revaluation cycle. To work through this issue, Dan convened a Property Revaluation Working Group made up of tax assessors from across the state. In Dan’s mind, municipalities must have a voice at the State House. Giving them a seat at the table is central to Rhode Island’s success.
