Indiana Gateway for Government Units
The Indiana Gateway for Government Units grew from the Information for Indiana initiative, a collaboration of the State of Indiana and Indiana University which began in 2006 to make state-collected information available to Indiana citizens.
Gateway extends the Information for Indiana initiative to local governments statewide. Gateway collects financial information from local officials directly through the web and in turn makes those data public as soon as possible after the collection phase has been completed.
Assessed Value, Budget Data, Debt Management, Employee Compensation, Property Tax, and more are available for Dayton. You will find that our financial situation is much better than most towns in the state. See for yourself at Indiana Gateway for Government Units.
