Fiscal Management and Technical Assistance

Local governments in Michigan continue to struggle with stagnant revenues and rising costs. MSU Extension offers fiscal sustainability training to local governing boards and other elected and appointed officials. Our services can include working with local officials to analyze revenue and policy options, spending controls and the management of long-term liabilities such as pensions and retiree health care costs. MSU Extension can also assist in preparing for and hiring key employees and submitting requests for proposal preparation.
