Center for Public Affairs report to focus on government spending, performance
The UW-Green Bay Center for Public Affairs is set to release the second installment in its series of Policy Snapshot Reports Tuesday (Nov. 11), focusing on government spending and performance as local public entities plan their budgets for the coming year. “Connecting the Dots: Public Performance and Financial Trends in Brown County and the City of Green Bay” is designed to provide elected officials, community leaders and citizens with a single document that tracks fiscal and performance data in Green Bay and Brown County during a five-year period. Assistant Prof. David Helpap, Public and Environmental Affairs, led the Policy Snapshot research team, along UW-Green Bay senior and CFPA research scholar Renee Christensen. The full report will be available on the CFPA website, www.uwgb.edu/cfpa, starting tomorrow. The 2013 Policy Snapshot Report, on the hot-button issue of school vouchers, can be viewed there, as well.
