As municipalities continue to face severe fiscal pressures, it becomes imperative for policy leaders - mayors, council members, selectmen, and managers - to understand the future financial condition of their jurisdictions. An appreciation of potential fiscal problems for the next five years will enable municipal leaders to make sound fiscal policies today.
