Unified Government Open Data

The Unified Government is committed to financial transparency. In this spirit, we've provided this online application to allow the public access to a broad range of financial reports currently available in three categories from 2005 to the current year:  

This one-stop shop is for all financial activities and functions of the government. The OpenGov platform has interactive charts and graphs designed to help you understand how the City and County spends and receives money. To learn more about your government, start exploring the financial reports, department budgets and historical data. New data will be added each year following adoption of the budget; giving the public access to the most current department budget information, revenue and expenditure trends.

This resource is a part of our ongoing effort to enhance transparency, share information with the community and promote public engagement in our local government.
