For the first time, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is offering a comprehensive Municipal Finance Trend Dashboard now available on the Division of Local Services (DLS) website. The dashboard is comprised of key municipal fiscal health indicators and graphically displays trends in revenues and expenditures, municipal operating positions, demographic information, unfunded liabilities, property taxes, Proposition 2 ½ data, and debt. For decades, the DLS Municipal Databank has served as an invaluable resource for local and state officials, professional associations, academic institutions, bond rating agencies, advocacy organizations, think tanks, the media, and interested taxpayers for research, analysis, and policy development. We are now leveraging that resource to provide a transparent and accessible tool to analyze and visualize the fiscal health of Massachusetts’ 351 cities and towns. Click here to see more!
