Municipal Reporting Guide

The Alabama League of Municipalities is excited to launch the first edition of our Municipal Reporting Guide! Alabama has various state laws that require local governments to provide annual reports on specific municipal operations. As part of our mission to support our members, the League created this one stop guide to ensure our municipalities are aware of such requirements and can maintain transparency with their citizens. While this guide does not include all the information about each law, it does provide an overview of the requirements, contact information and deadlines. This is also a living document that will be continually updated as new laws are enacted each session.

Since 1935, the League has been the voice of Alabama’s municipalities and has worked to strengthen municipal government through advocacy, training and the advancement of effective local leadership. The League fully understands that municipalities are the foundation of Alabama’s economy and that we must work diligently and intentionally to ensure our cities and towns continue to provide essential resources and services that foster safe, vibrant spaces for businesses to thrive and citizens to live, work, play and prosper.

Please reach out to any member of our legal team at 334-262-2566, if you need any assistance with completing reporting requirements.
