Since 1975, the Local Government Handbook has provided a brief history and a comprehensive and authoritative overview of our local, state, and federal governments. Now in its seventh edition, this publication is an invaluable tool for citizens, municipal officials, teachers, students, and anyone who seeks to understand the complexity of state and local government.

New York State has a tradition of home rule authority and providing citizens with a strong voice in their local governments. In order to exercise that voice effectively, it is important to understand how our government and officials function at every level. The New York State Department of State Division of Local Government Services assists local citizens and local officials in providing effective and efficient services.

The Local Government Handbook was made possible through the efforts and contributions of experts working at all levels of state agencies. Their work on this important document is greatly appreciated.
