The Division of Local Services has a new tool available for quickly finding key financial and demographic information for all 351 Massachusetts cities and towns.
The Municipal Finance Snapshot Dashboard uses Tableau visualizations to display data in 14 financial categories including Average Single Family Tax Bill, Local Receipts, New Growth and much more. Selecting a city or town from the map provides a wealth of data about that community.
Please visit the Municipal Finance Snapshot Dashboard to explore all the information DLS has to offer in a new, easy-to-use way!
In a trial run of the new snapshot dashboard, I found this Town of Franklin info (image below). Go try for yourself:https://edit.mass.gov/info-details/city-and-town-municipal-finance-snapshots
