The management of human resources is becoming the most significant task of elected and appointed municipal officials. As we are all aware, the greatest proportion of most of our budgets is composed of the salaries and benefits necessary to retain competent and productive employees. This manual provides information relating to the understanding and development of a basic municipal personnel management system. The manual is not intended to answer every question that might occur as a result of personnel management problems, but it can point a municipal official in the correct direction as that official attempts to develop a legal and workable personnel system.
