On this episode, the League's Tony Minghine talks with U-M's Debra Horner, who heads up the annual public policy survey conducted by the Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy (CLOSUP). For the past 10 years, CLOSUP has been surveying Michigan's cities, villages, townships, and counties on a variety of topics, including fiscal health, poverty, energy, opioids, and - most recently - relationships on their councils and boards. Based on the survey results, they compile a variety of reports to help municipalities in their policy-making decisions. The data is also available online at http://closup.umich.edu/
