Keeping a county or city running is an expensive endeavor. But who decides how to spend those millions – or even billions of dollars? Local governments have to finance police and fire, help pay for public schools, pave roads, build bridges and plug potholes. What else do they have to pay for? Who pays for sports stadiums, or giant chandeliers hanging overhead? And does the public get any say?
