GH provides look into performance with government dashboard

The city of Grand Haven has introduced a new government dashboard that aims to provide a glimpse into the health of the city and meet the requirements of the state's Economic Vitality Incentive Program. The Economic Vitality Incentive Program requires local government receiving statutory revenue sharing under Public Act 140 to create a Citizens' Guide to Finance and an Internet performance dashboard. "I am very much in favor of this (dashboard), and I am also in favor of the other report,' City Finance Director Jim Bonamy said.

Bonamy said they have added twice as many pieces of information than what was required on its government dashboard. To come up with the dashboard data, he said he uses an Excel spreadsheet to input numbers and then the numbers are compared.

“What’s really good about it is — here is a quick and easy way for the public to go and see what is up,” Bonamy said.
