MTAS History

Document Type


Publication Date



The purpose of this manual is to acquaint municipal, county, and state officials, and state legislators, with the cities' financial needs and the necessity of a better allocation of state-collected revenue. This manual, while not as complete as we would like it, should prove a handy reference manual for all municipal officials, and one in which they can readily find use in discussing municipal financial needs with state legislators, and county and state officials.
