About the Local Government Commission

The North Carolina Local Government Commission was created in 1931 by North Carolina General Statutes Chapter 159 to address issues in local government finance that arose during the Great Depression. In the 80+ years since, the LGC has provided consistent financial oversight for over 1,100 units of local government, resulting in significant benefits to taxpayers, policymakers, and our communities.
