This paper examines whether political institutions affect the way municipalities are managed based on case studies of the different municipal structures adopted by 24 cities across North America. The aim is to provide recommendations to the London Chamber of Commerce with respect to municipal management. The findings reveal that municipal governance is dependent upon the structure of the corporation and the way in which the structure affects governance is determined by the roles of the key players.
