Mr. Dan Sweat

Federal Programs Coordinator
City Hall

Atlanta, Georgia

Dear Dan:

I appointed a committee during the last board meeting in
Atlanta for the purpose of evaluating the role of the
Georgia Municipal Association as relates to the part the
Association should play in relation to the metropolitan
local councils of government and to area planning and
development commissions.

Under Section 701-G of the 1965 Housing Act, certain grants

may be made to metropolitan local councils of government for
studies and data collection, etc. It has occurred to the GMA
staff that a relationship might be developed between the

local councils and the Association which would have the effect
of (1) providing the already existing resources of the Associa~
tion to local councils, thereby avoiding unnecessary duplication
and competition of GMA programs which have been over 33 years
in the making and (2) providing a strong liaison between the
larger urban areas in the evaluation of programs which are
directed, or should be directed, toward our large cities and/or
their respective metropolitan areas.

Since counties are involved in the metropolitan local councils
of government, it might be of benefit to work with the Assoc-
iation of County Commissioners in developing joint policy in
support of our large urban areas, recognizing at the same time,
that local decision-making must not be interfered with, nor
any joint programs pursued, except with the consent of local
officials.

Another area for possible consideration by the committee is the
problems of the local community outside the metropolitan areas.

Mr. Dan Sweat is
May 31, 1966

There are some problems developing in relation to programs

of area planning and development commissions which serve com—
Munities outside metropolitan areas. There are federal programs
being developed for municipalities under 5,500 population,
administered by the Farmers Home Administration and other
agencies of the Federal Department of Agriculture. These
deserve serious review.

For the cities of over 5,500 population outside standard
metropolitan statistical areas, there are other problems,
or opportunities.

In addition, there are other problems in relation to new
and/or changing federal grant and loan programs which need
to be studied.

It has taken the Georgia Municipal Association 33 years to
develop a coordinated program to assist our cities and towns

at the political level, as well as at the service level. We
need to evaluate the role of the Association with the new
metropolitan local councils of government, the area commissions
and our total membership.

The committee, as appointed, is as follows:
Mayor John Cromartie, Gainesville, Chairman
Mayor Howard Atherton, Marietta, Vice-Chairman
Mayor Jack LeRoy, Ailey
James B. Blackburn, City Attorney Savannah
Dan Sweat, Federal Programs Coordinator, Atlanta
Please return the attached card, advising of your acceptance.
Sincerely,

A lar

J. Steve Knight
President
