Mission and purpose were the key focus points of a Community and City Government Summit held Saturday morning at the Latrobe Municipal Building. Hosted by Latrobe Mayor Rosemarie Wolford and Latrobe City Council, city leaders and local foundations met to lay the groundwork to facilitate possible cooperation on future projects.
