Over the years CTAS has published numerous manuals, technical publications, and other written materials to assist county officials in the performance of their duties. These publications covered every facet of county government in Tennessee. CTAS is moving towards providing publications electronically to facilitate keeping reference materials current and always available to county officials. Publications that may be downloaded and printed are listed under Other Information. Counties should consult their CTAS county government consultant and/or their county attorney for definitive guidance.
