EVIP Reports
Economic Vitality Incentive Program (EVIP)
During 2011, the state instituted the Economic Vitality incentive Program (EVIP) which shifts a portion of the state's revenue sharing program to an incentive based program. This program requires local units of government eligible for the funding to meet certain eligibility requirements in order to receive funding. Revenue sharing is an important source of revenue for the city. During both 2011 and 2012, the City met the requirements of all three of the EVIP funding categories (accountability and transparency; cooperationc collaborationc and consolidation; and employeee compensation plan).

Funding Categories
The information below identifies the three funding categories and the documentation filed with the Department of Treasury to comply with the EVIP requirments.

Accountability & Transparency
For its 2013 fiscal year, the state has required eligible communities to file with the Department of Treasury the following documents in order to receive EVIP funding for the accountability and transparency category. As required, these documents were filed by the city with the Department of Treasury by the October 1, 2013 deadline. To review these documents click on the links below:

Employee Compensation Plan
The third and final eligibility requirement for EVIP is the preparation and publication of an Employee Pension and Health Care Benefits Review Plan.  The city's original plan was submitted by the State of Michigan on April 25, 2012.  The first updated plan was submitted to the State on May 21, 2013 thereby meeting the State's June 1, 2013 plan update deadline.  The city suggests that the viewer read both reports since Plan #2 is intended to act as an update to the original plan, illustrating the progress that has been made in implementing the goal established by the State.
