Florida Municipal Officials' Manual


This manual is primarily a review of state statutory provisions affecting the conduct of municipal affairs; therefore, it will be useful primarily to the reader who seeks this sort of information. However, other types of information are presented which we believe will be useful to municipal officials. The goal is to be simple and concise, rather than all inclusive.
