Local Government 101: Important Basics

The League’s 1-day workshops provide a basic framework for governing to both new city and village officials and those who want to brush up on their knowledge of local governance. 

You’ll learn about city and village powers including municipal home rule, hear about how to recognize and avoid conflicts of interest, go home with a quick tutorial on municipal budgeting as well as how to run a meeting and finish with an overview on managing public works projects.  In addition, you’ll have that age-old question answered: “what is a walking quorum anyway?”
