Greetings from Westland, an All American City,

 

As Mayor of Michigan’s 10th largest city, I am honored to bring you the 2014 Citizens Guide to Westland’s financial health. Over 84,000 men, women and children call Westland “home” and should find the following guide to be informative and useful as you may ask, “Where do my tax dollars go?”  This guide will answer many of your questions and will provide the specifics of our great City’s strong financial position in 2014.

The following pages explain the City’s financial picture and will give insight to the operations of the City of Westland. If you would like further information, have questions or have a comment  my administration and I are always here to serve you and would enjoy the opportunity to talk with you.

With highest regards,

William R. Wild
Mayor

Citizen's Guide to Westlands Financial Health App     

What is it?
It is an online tool or app that allows you unprecedented and user friendly access to your City's financial data for the past several years.  This app allows you to look at the revenues, expenditures, position, and obligations in graph and data table form.  The app even allows you to compare our data against other cities data where available.

Why are you making this available?
Transparency and accountability should be a major goal for any city or township.  We're proud of the job we're doing managing the resources, both human and capital.  This app shows you how your tax dollars are being used to provide the highest quality of life and the best municipal services possible.

How much does it cost Westland to provide this app?
The great news is this services is provided to Westland and it's residents absolutely free!

All this data is too confusing!  Isn't there a simpler view?
Yes!  If all this data is just too much to make sense of, try our Performance Dashboard app below.  This app is designed to give you a more simple view of our financial health and performance.

How do I get to the app?

Performance Dashboard App     

What is it?
This app gives you a quick and simple way of looking at and comparing our performance in key areas for the last two years.  Best of all, this companion app is free also!

How is this app different from the Financial Summary app?
The Performance Dashboard, unlike the Citizens Guide app, is meant to give you a single page view of our performance in key areas over a shorter period of time.  The Citizens Guide app has much more detail and many more years of data to look at and compare.

I want more data.  Where do I go?
The perfect place to find more detailed data and graphs is our Citizens Guide App above.  There's many more years of data available and the opportunity to compare your All American City with other cities in the State.
