Handbook for Municipal Officials

The Louisiana Municipal Association has prepared this handbook to provide elected and appointed municipal officials with a general overview of their responsibilities related to the operation of their villages, towns, and cities. This expanded version of the Handbook for Louisiana Municipal Officials is intended not only for newly-elected officials but also veterans in municipal government. The inclusion of legal references, where warranted, provides a convenient place to initiate further research.
