Georgetown launches online financial ‘transparency center’
From Delaware Online
Much of Georgetown’s financial information can now be viewed online by anyone, anytime.
The Sussex County seat is the first Delaware municipality to use ClearGov software to provide residents with an online financial “transparency center.”
“These days, not everyone has the time to attend public meetings. The transparency center will make it easy and convenient for interested residents to stay informed,” Mayor Bill West said.
ClearGov aims to make financial information easy to access and understand. It breaks down Georgetown’s revenues and expenditures by category, each of which can be clicked to view further breakdowns. Clicking “download financials” at the top of each revenue and expenditure page provides even more information.
