While the City of Petersburg has shown its commitment to financial transparency by posting financial documents on our city’s website, including the City’s operating budgets, sometimes additional information may be sought out by citizens. Oftentimes that information is most easily understood through interactive charts and graphs.
In an effort to enhance transparency in financial reporting, the City of Petersburg is offering an interactive reporting tool that allows citizens to explore the City’s budget data online in various graphical formats selected by the user. OpenGov, a California-based company specializing in financial transparency, pioneered this online application.
The City is providing actual historical budget data from for public review. We hope to strengthen the connection between our local government and our community members.
