Pittsburgh, Kittanning and Washington, PA- Municipal Authorities Services

A Municipal Authority is a form of special-purpose governmental unit in Pennsylvania. The municipal authority is an alternate vehicle for accomplishing public purposes without the direct action of counties, municipalities and school districts.  These purposes commonly include the acquisition, financing, construction and operation of projects such as water supply and sewer systems and similar entities. An authority may fix and collect rentals or other charges and may issue revenue bonds. A board appointed by the establishing government or governments governs each authority.

Our clients—their governing bodies—rely on our independent and objective accounting and auditing services to meet their needs for financial transparency.
