Local Government Services include administrative, financial, and other assistance to local officials, staff, and citizens in the day-to-day operation of a local government. The LGS Section delivers assistance through workshops, publications, individual consultations, on-line resources, and local government site visits.
General areas of assistance include but are not limited to Budgeting, Finance, General Government Administration, Special District Administration and Elections, local government financial analysis, and enterprise management. In addition, LGS staff assist with preparation, processing and publication with a number of required local government filings that are received by the Department of Local Affairs. Finally LGS staff perform research functions for the state, local governments, and other interested individuals to generate useful information to inform the legislature, other decision makers and the general public.
