Todd Miles will present at the New York Government Finance Officers’ Association Annual Conference on the topic of, “Debt Perception: Setting Your Entity’s Debt Capacity.”

A description of this presentation is below from the NYGFOA program website:

Local governments in New York have a debt limit set in the State Constitution.  However, this limit is rarely calibrated to local conditions.  Without a sense of what is truly affordable it is impossible to make truly wise decisions about the use of debt.  This session will review the best measures of local debt affordability and how to come up with local limits that make the most sense for your community.
