The purpose of the paper is to investigate the relationship between local government size and costs expenditures in Slovenia. There is only one tier of local government in Slovenia. Municipalities differ substantially in their size, spending activities and in other socio-economic characteristics. Consequently, this gives opportunity to assess the relation and the effect of size on per capita expenditures

of municipalities, which could be either linear positive, negative or

non-linear U-shaped, inverted U-shaped. The empirical evidence suggests that linear negative effect of municipal size on per capita expenditures of Slovenian municipalities could be observed, which means that findings speak in favour of policy implications that foster municipal amalgamation.
