Local Government in Connecticut, Third Edition

Originally published in 1992 and revised in 2001, Frank B. Connolly’s Local Government in Connecticut is one of the most useful and well-established resources on the state’s local government. Written expressly for public officials and students, the book explains Connecticut’s basic forms of local government and its many variants, as well as examining their inner workings, including governance, management, administration, municipal services, education, and land use. This new edition has been entirely revised, expanded, and updated, with new chapters on charter revision, municipal employees and unionization, education, homeland security and local government, pensions, and economic development. It includes references to key sections of the Connecticut General Statutes. This unique and indispensable resource for the state is published in cooperation with the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities.


“If there be any doubts that Connecticut residents should take city and town affairs seriously, then the new edition of Local Government in Connecticut should dispel them…The latest version of Local Government offers a very complete textbook on modern city and town administration in our state.”

—Donald W. Rogers, Connecticut History Review
