Would a city buy government securities through mutual funds in a managed account from a person w/ a series 65?

No.

In the first place, government bond funds--actually, any type bond mutual funds--are lousy investments with great risk of principal since the mutual fund is perpetual. Your money doesn't "mature", and when bond prices decline it is the government bonds that take the biggest hit because they have less credit risk. Market risk is HUGE.

They will laugh you out of the room two seconds after they realize what you're proposing.
