Philosophy

Home / ABOUT US / Philosophy

Our communities share a common philosophy with respect to the relationship between the state and local units of government.

We believe that sound public policy should:

  • Strive to promote greater stability and predictability in the fiscal relationship between the state and local units of government.
  • Provide public services by the level of government closest to those affected.
  • Create a state system by which city services are financed in an equitable, accountable and straight-forward manner.

Our communities pledge their support of a comprehensive approach to addressing ongoing challenges. In order to succeed in these endeavors, local governments must provide effective tools and the flexibility to use them without unfunded mandates from other units of government.
