Thursday, January 19, 2012

Tom Ivacko, administrator for the Center of Local, State and Urban Policy, was quoted in a Bridge Magazine article that suggests townships are generally in much better shape financially than other local units of government.

The study by Isabella County administrator Tim Dolehanty comes at a time when the state government has increasingly pressured local governments to operate efficiently and at a lower cost.

"It's a hot potato topic," Ivacko said.

Bridge Magazine is a publication by The Center for Michigan.
