About the topic:

Though the economy has improved significantly since the Great Recession, recovery among Michigan's local governments has not kept pace. Many are asking whether the state's system of funding local government is providing sustainable sources of local finances into the future. In this free webinar the Citizens Research Council of Michigan (CRC) and the Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy (CLOSUP) at the University of Michigan offer two perspectives on this issue. A recent survey from CLOSUP provides local leaders' opinions on the stability of the municipal finance system and ideas for providing additional revenues for local government operations. CRC will address policy issues with various revenue generating options and compare how Michigan's system of funding local government compares to systems in other states. Please join us. 

Founded in 1916, the Citizens Research Council of Michigan works to improve government in Michigan. The organization provides factual, unbiased, independent information concerning significant issues of state and local government organization, policy, and finance. By delivery of this information to policymakers and citizens, CRC aims to ensure sound and rational public policy formation in Michigan. For more information, visit www.crcmich.org

The Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy (CLOSUP), housed at the University of Michigan's Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, conducts and supports applied policy research designed to inform state, local, and urban policy issues. Through integrated research, teaching, and outreach involving academic researchers, students, policymakers and practitioners, CLOSUP seeks to foster understanding of today's state and local policy problems, and to find effective solutions to those problems.
