Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray led a meeting of the municipal affairs coordinating cabinet in Buckland Thursday afternoon.
Murray made the stop to the Franklin County community one of his last days on the job. His resignation is official June 2.
The meeting provided an opportunity for government and town officials as well as residents to talk about where the region currently stand and what opportunities are out there to bring improvements to the community.
"Local government is the level of government that most people rely on a day to day basis so if we can bring resources and tools to help cities and towns in rural areas or urban areas it's better for the residents of the commonwealth," said Murray.
"There are a lot of issues that we collaborate with the state on and it's a good opportunity for them to hear from us and for us to hear from them," said the Chairman of the Buckland Select Board Bob Dean.
Representatives from several local towns including Deerfield, Buckland, Greenfield, Ashfield and Conway were among those in attendance at the meeting.
