The 2018 revised Patterns of Government is an important resource for elected and public officials, citizens, students, businesses, nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and the general public. Patterns of Government also serves as the textbook for Citizens Academy, co- sponsored by FOCUS Greater Syracuse and Syracuse University Community Engagement. Local government courses at Maxwell School of Syracuse University and Newhouse School of Public Communications also use Patterns of Government as an educational tool. This book contains vital information that ordinarily can be found only when one researches multiple sources. This informational book will help you understand how local governments are organized, the services they provide, and sources of funding. You will become aware of how tax dollars are used, the function and interaction of programs, and “who to call” for service and information. If the material in this book motivates civic trusteeship and mutual responsibility with governments, it has achieved its purpose.
