Abstract

This report presents the views of Michigan’s local government leaders regarding both the state’s system of funding local government and their jurisdictions’ ability to provide public services in the aftermath of the Great Recession. The findings are based on responses to statewide surveys of local government leaders in the Spring 2012 wave of the Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS).

Keywords: public finance, local government
