The National League of Cities with it's report co-authors, Michael A. Pagano, UIC CUPPA Dean, and Christiana McFarland, NLC Center for City Solutions Research Director, released City Fiscal Conditions 2017 on September 12.

The 2017 City Fiscal Conditions survey of city finance officers reveals the start of fiscal contraction in the municipal sector following several years of post-recession growth. Several major findings taken together signal a slowdown on the horizon, including waning confidence of city finance officers, slowing local revenue and spending trends and insufficient post-recession revenue recovery.
