HOW we HELP you
Help City Staff & Officials
TLGC helps city staff and local officials craft policies and ordinaces that encourage sound, long-term fiscal management, as well as policies that promote open government at every level to empower cititizens.
Our membership and staff comes from all across Texas. Be it urban, suburban, rural, property wealthy or property poor, TLGC has the knowledge to help address your community’s needs.
Through our Local Government Symposiums, we gather local leaders from across the State to highlight innovative programs and the emerging best practices being employed in all different areas of city government.
In-Depth Policy Guides
TLGC periodically releases in-depth public policy handbooks on local government. These guides are provided free of charge to our members. These handbooks are designed to help both the layman and seasoned government veterans.
Why we do it
Our goal is to find existing success stories and promote best practices amoung local governments saving tax dollars that can be properly invested back into the community.
Transparency is essential to holding the public trust. TGLC believes in equal public access to information so that citizens can be equipped with the knowledge to bring issues to light when they occur.
Because LOcal Matter
Texans are impacted most by decisions made at their local city hall, not Austin or Washington. TLGC believes that improving local government is the most effective way to improve the lives of citizens.
We work with local elected officals across Texas in cities large and small.
