The U-M Ford School’s Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy conducted the Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS) in 20201. Findings show that more than half of Michigan’s local officials said moving to virtual government meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic decreased the overall quality of the meetings.

Horner further highlights findings from the survey.
