The DLS Technical Assistance Section provides consultant-type services to cities and towns on municipal operations, government structure and matters of financial management. A complete list of the services that a DLS Technical Assistance team can provide for your community appears at the first link below.
If you think your community might benefit from a general assessment from DLS and/or you need help deciding which of these services might be most appropriate for your community, we are available to conduct on-site meetings or telephone consultations with local officials to assist in determining which services best meet your needs. To schedule a consultation of this type, please call Rick Kingsley at (617) 626-2376 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Published reports, best practices, financial calculators and inter-municipal agreement drafting guides are among the resources posted to the technical assistance area of our website. New information is continually added to keep local officials up-to-date on ways to improve financial operations in their community
