AMEA continues to see Hometown Connections as a way for our 11 Member cities/utilities to take advantage of the collective buying power of APPA, while forming alliances with companies providing first-rate products and services to our Members that AMEA could not provide on its own. Hometown Connections bolsters AMEA’s vision of providing a competitive edge and a high level of service to the municipal utilities in Alabama and Mississippi.
