Municipal Dashboard
Under the Economic Vitality Incentive Program or EVIP, the State of Michigan is requiring local units of government who receive statutory revenue sharing under PA 140 to create a Citizens Guide to Financial Health and an internet performance dashboard. Though Niles Charter Township does not qualify for statutory revenue sharing from the State of Michigan, we saw this as a great idea and opportunity to display quality and transparent statistical data to residents and internet guests alike through our website. In conjunction with Munetrix is now able to display robust financial data as well as municipal performance through four categories: Fiscal Stability, Economic Strength, Public Safety, and Quality of Life.
If you have any questions or comments please contact the Treasurer’s Office at 269-684-0870 or email at

The Municipal Performance Dashboard includes financial and operating measures important to the government and its citizens. This data includes a current and prior year overview comparisons as well as charts and graphs that allow you to view trends over multiple years
