How North Carolina Municipalities Work
North Carolina municipalities - cities, towns and villages - operate under charters granted by the General Assembly and have powers and authorities granted to them by state statutes and the state constitution. In this state, municipalities do not have home rule, which means that the state legislature must grant the powers and authority to municipalities and authorize them to perform certain functions. Read more about how cities and towns operate.

Publications
Every elected municipal official and every key appointed official receives two NCLM publications, Southern City, bi-monthly, and League Letter, weekly. These general-interest publications keep officials updated on how other cities and towns are meeting challenges, how state and federal decisions affect local governments and what programs and services the League offers. Other publications go to specific groups, such as Law Notes to municipal attorneys, or the Directory of North Carolina Municipal Officials and Buyers' Guide to the chief administrative officer in each city or town. In addition, the League publishes Legislative Bulletins, a Risk Management Services Annual Report, Loss Control Safety Bulletins and more.

Advertising
Another way the League serves its members — and keeps them informed of services, issues and events — is with its publications and with the advertising opportunities in these publications.
