Capital Financing in Local Government

  • Asheville, NC

This course reviews the authorized debt financing and other capital financing options available to local governments in North Carolina. It reviews the legal authority and procedures for each capital financing option (current revenues, savings, special levies, and borrowing money) and discusses common practical and strategic issues.
