For fiscal year 2015, the State legislature established the City, Village and Township Revenue Sharing Program (CVTRS) program. The new program is a simplified version of the former Economic Vitality Incentive Plan (EVIP).

In order to be eligible to receive the full CVTRS payment, the City must complete all requirements of the Accountability and Transparency portion.


The requirements are:

Citizens’ Guide

The areas covered include revenues, expenses, financial position and financial obligations such as debt and pensions. The guide provides 5 years of data and has various drop down features that allow the reader to drill down to specific areas, (Enable Editing in the Guide to use the drop down menus).
