Information, Resources, and Consulting Services
The League works hard to remain out in front of new developments in local government. We strive to proactively provide the information you’ll need through our research support and resources like an online clearinghouse of sample ordinances and policies, and easy-to-read fact sheets on 70+ topics including the Open Meetings Act and Freedom of Information Act. Member officials may request information and/or material on any municipal issue.
We are also home to one-of-a-kind research databases like our searchable online wage and benefits survey, city charter database, and electronic labor contract library. From our magazine to our newsfeeds and listservs, we are your one-stop shop to stay connected and informed. We also offer a range of fee-based consulting services such as executive search, customized pay and benefits studies, job description development, and personnel manuals.
The League’s magazine, The Review, includes relevant features and interviews with Michigan’s leaders. The Municipal Yellow Pages, a directory of suppliers to local governments featured in the League’s biannual Directory of Michigan Municipal Officials, is one of the first places local officials look when they are ready to purchase products, services, consulting, and advice. The League’s website also offers a host of e-books and resources, including the Handbook for Municipal Officials.
The League Resource Center houses an extensive collection of materials relating to local government which includes sample documents such as contracts, ordinances, policies, resolutions, and Request for Proposals (RFPs) for many municipal needs.
