Abstract

This report presents local government leaders' views on the COVID-19 pandemic in Michigan through May of 2020, including impacts on the state and its communities, expectations for how long negative impacts would persist, evaluations of governmental coordination, and resource needs to grapple with the resulting public health and economic challenges. These findings are based on statewide surveys of local government leaders in the Spring 2020 wave of the Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS), conducted between March 30 and June 1, 2020.

Keywords: COVID19, COVID-19, pandemic, Michigan, local government, public health, fiscal health
