Boone Co. Fiscal Court Adds OpenGov for Citizens to Look at Finances
The Boone County Fiscal Court is the latest local government to add OpenGov, an financial information application that offers greater transparency to citizens.
The software platform is now available on the county's website. It offers a deep look into the county's finances from June 2012 to the current month.
Founded in 2012 with headquarters in Silicon Valley, OpenGov is the market leader in cloud-based financial transparency for state and local governments. With OpenGov technology, governments collaborate more effectively through their budgeting process, make smarter data-driven decisions and build trust through greater transparency. The company currently serves nearly 300 governments across 38 states.
"Government spending and fiscal responsibility is the highest priority for our administration. Opengov.com is now a great tool for our staff to monitor our income and expenses. It is also available to our residents to track where their tax dollars are being spent," said Boone County Judge/Executive Gary Moore.
