Local government budgeting
This is the first publication in a new series designed to aid elected and appointed officials in local government in Missouri. The series will focus on the administrative responsibilities of local officials associated with counties, cities, towns or villages, and special districts. This first guide gives an overview of the budgetary process for all types of local governments including the constitutional and statutory requirements and the reasons for budgeting. It also points out some weaknesses in existing law and makes suggestions for improving financial reporting, as well as improving the decision-making process of budgeting. The Administrative Guide Series is the third category of publications developed by the Governmental Affairs Program, and will have new titles added over the next several years in the areas of: ( 1) governmental accounting and fiscal administration, and (2) local government administration. In addition, the Missouri Local Government Hand k Series was developed several years ago to aid local officials and now includes five publications.--Foreword
