Our clients say

Plante Moran was instrumental in helping us get a handle on the budget by creating a consolidated report to view all of the city’s accounts. This not only helped us internally, but it created a better public trust in our community. I recommended Plante Moran to the City of Wayne and continue to recommend them to others because when you hire Plante Moran you get the whole team and their combined knowledge. They are great at making sure everyone is available to respond to questions and I know they are looking out for our city.
