In 1931 the North Carolina General Assembly established the Local Government Commission (LGC) to help address the problems in local government finance. The LGC, established by G.S. 159-3, provides assistance to local governments and public authorities in North Carolina. It is staffed by the Department of State Treasurer and approves the issuance of debt for all units of local government and assists those units. The full LGC meets every other month, with a four member executive committee meeting in the months when the full LGC does not meet. Special meetings also may occasionally be called to consider a proposed financing in a timely manner. For more information on the LGC just click on the link below.
