Taking Stock of Form and Structure in County Government

Summary from icma.org:

"County governments in the United States combine deeply rooted traditional structures and the forms of government developed in the 20th century reform movement. In the August 2008 issue of PM, we used the 100th anniversary of the addition of a city manager to the government in Staunton, Virginia, as the occasion to take stock of form of government in cities. It is appropriate to make a similar assessment in counties, which have used the commission-administrator or manager form for more than 80 years."
