The City of Santa Clarita has launched a new online financial reporting platform that enables easy access to the last few years of the City’s economic data, including the City’s budget for the 2015-2016 fiscal year.
The online platform will increase transparency on how the City spends and receives its money; it does so through easy to understand analysis and visualization tools. Residents can access this new platform by clicking on the Financials icon at http://www.santa-clarita.com/opendata.
The new financial platform makes the City’s finances—which currently provides information from fiscal year 2012/2013—more manageable and understandable. Residents can explore years of historical revenue and expenditure trends over time by way of interactive graphs. They can drill down to more specific financial details by further filtering the data by fund, department, project, or revenue type, in just a few clicks.
The City’s new financial platform is powered by OpenGov, a web-based financial analysis and visualization software for state and local governments. For more information about the City of Santa Clarita, please visit http://www.santa-clarita.com.
