Municipal Finance & Fiscal Health

One of the primary objectives in the 2013 Maryland Municipal League Strategic Plan calls for "distribut(ing) finance and fiscal health information via the MML website." This page, though a work in progress, represents part of that effort.

Below you will find a variety of links to documents and websites geared toward enhancing the knowledge base and governing capacity of Maryland's municipal officials as it relates to budgeting and financial management.

If you have specific questions or need additional information, email MML Research Director Jim Peck.
