Describe each level of government's role in building roads and how these roles have changed over time.
In colonial days it was the local government's responsibility to build a new road. Now, it is the local, state, and federal government that work together to build roads. Some states have state highway commissions to build a state highway system. They are in charge of the state highways. Local governments are in charge of the highways and roads that they have. Federal government is mostly in charge of interstate highway systems.
Compare and contrast the mayor-council and council-manager forms of city
In the mayor council government, the city council is the legislative body, while the mayor is the city's chief executive officer. In this government they have a weak mayor plan, which limits the power of the mayor and gives more power to the city council, and the strong-mayor plan, which gives more power to the mayor and less to the city council. In this type of government city council members and mayors are usually elected. The council-manager government is a commission with a city manager. Voters elect a city council. The council then appoints a city manager. The city manager then appoints the heads of city departments. They are the same because in both they elect a city council.
