The City of Santa Barbara has launched a new finance tracking tool available online. “To improve transparency, OpenGov was developed to help make government finances more understandable by the general public,” city officials said in a press release.
“Transparency is fundamental to good government. Through this partnership with OpenGov, residents will have new insight and access to our City’s financial information,” said Mayor Helene Schneider.
The tool offers two main ways to view the info: The “Annual” option shows the city’s financial activity by year from fiscal year 2010 to fiscal year 2015. The “Current Year” option shows data by month and year through the most current month of closed activity.
