Track municipal data on redesigned state website

PROVIDENCE - Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee has announced a newly designed website, www.municipalfinance.ri.gov , for the Division of Municipal Finance. The new online tool is a comprehensive resource for people to research all contracts by municipality; review proposed and passed legislation that affects cities and towns; find local tax rates and median income; view contact information for officials; and get links to municipal audits, websites and charters.

The website also includes the first comprehensive examination since the 1960s of Rhode Island's fire districts.

Featured reports and data now include the 2013 Municipal Salary Survey, pension and other post-employment benefit obligations, Property Tax Cap and Pensions Valuation publications, Funding Improvement Plans and the 2014 Directory of City and Town Officials.
