This book has been written for local government professionals who lead and manage cities and counties and who are responsible for the efficient, effective, and equitable administration of services to citizens. The comprehensive guide for meeting the new demands in today’s world and ensuring the best service possible with a valuable collection. Managing Local Government Services continues to highlight the problems and experience of managers in small communities, because most local government managers serve in small cities and counties. Managers in many small cities and counties do not have the staff or the financial resources to introduce and maintain a full spectrum of sophisticated services. Many of these managers must personally see to everything from purchasing to tree removal. Many feel that change is more difficult in a small place. This book addresses the special concerns of local governments with limited resources and closes every chapter with a set of questions designed for managers of small communities.
