ICMA has been conducting a survey on municipal form of government for many years. The longitudinal data that emerge allow researchers to examine how the form and structure of city government have changed over time. Some changes are noticeable, such as the increase in chief appointed official positions in all forms of government; some are more nuanced, such as the characteristics that indicate a blurring of distinctions among traditional forms of government. With the findings from the 2007 survey, as summarized in this article, ICMA adds another set of data to the picture of these and other developing trends. This e-document is an article included in The Municipal Year Book 2008. You will be able to download the PDF of the article after you add it to your shopping cart and purchase it. Individual articles from The Municipal Year Book 2008 are available for purchase as e-documents only.
