Abstract

This report presents the opinions of Michigan’s local government leaders on a range of issues regarding their jurisdictions’ workforce, including employee pay and fringe benefit rates, whether the size of the workforce is adequate for providing services, and personnel problems experienced, including recruitment and retention. These findings are based on statewide surveys of local government leaders from the Spring 2017 wave of the Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS), and reference MPPS surveys conducted each spring since 2011.

Keywords: workforce, local government
