Financial Transparency Platform

This interactive reporting tool allows you to explore City financial data.

This interactive reporting tool uses OpenGov. It allows you to:

  • Explore City financial data online in various, easy-to-use graphical formats
  • Download graphs and numbers.

You can find:

  • Historical financial data from 2008 to the current year
  • Each year following budget approval, a new year of data will be added to give you a rolling multi-year snapshot of revenue and expenditure trends by department, fund, or line item
  • Year-to-date monthly data will be made regularly available

Instructions on how to navigate the data are included via the "How To" tab at the top of the web page

See Financial Transparency Platform

Helpful tips

  • OpenGov allows you to explore budget and historical finances in a simple graphical user interface. The default view displays expenses broken down by City department.
  • The title of the chart or graph you are viewing is located at the top of the page.
  • To focus on specific data — like a fund, department, expense type or any combination — use the menu on the left side panel. The “By” drop-down allows you to specify which breakdown you want the graphs and table rows to represent on the graph. You can analyze the expense and revenues data by fund, department, or type.
  • To see actual dollar amounts within the graphs, hover over any area of the graph to see the actual or budgeted amounts for that period. You can also view a Table detailing the financial information in the visualizations by scrolling down or hitting the “View Table” button at the bottom right of the screen.  
  • The data can be downloaded into a .csv spreadsheet and .png image and also shared via email or any social media platform.
  • If you have questions or comments, you can send them to City via the Help menu located at the top right of the screen; there are instructions on how to send an email to City staff in the drop down menu.
