City Finance 101

Looking for a City Finance 101 session in your area? You can host one for your city or your region by contacting the League.

In reaction to many requests for financial training and fiscal planning for City Councils, ISU Extension and Outreach and the Iowa League of Cities have launched a Finance 101 program for elected officials to gain a better understanding of government finance, resources, responsibilities and some fraud prevention methods.

For regional or small city groups interested in this training session, contact Cindy Kendall at or
(515) 290-1811.

Participants are encouraged to bring their latest financial reports and the latest budget summary form.
