Seeking Local Government Acroynms

Your help is requested.

During my extensive time in local government we used a variety of acroynms . Acroynms that would help us briefly describe the issue before us.

Below is a list of the some of the acroynms I frequently used. If you have any, or know of any, acryonms used in local governments will you please share them with me. Just post them below and I will compile a master list.
