Municipalities are complex organizational systems composed of policies, activities and resources. Using an in-depth case study analysis, the elements that make up the organizational systems of three municipalities in southern California are explored. This analysis shows how variation in fiscal health can be attributed to structural and managerial choices regarding the design and organizing of towns and cities. With a better understanding of both the internal and external fit of the organization, a city's managers may be able to make more careful decisions and improve day-to-day management and develop an area.
