Abstract

Compares city-manager administered cities and those administered by a directly elected mayor and city-council by examining relative input usage between the two. Since public investment can have a direct effect on the growth of local economies decaying infrastructure has resulted in serious concern among policymakers. Finds that municipal government structure may play a large role in the public investment decision.
