PARK HILLS ROLLS OUT INTERACTIVE FINANCIAL TRANSPARENCY PLATFORM

 

OpenGov platform engages residents with instant access to budget data

December 1, 2016 – Park Hills, Kentucky – Mayor Matt Mattone announced today the launch of a new digital platform powered by OpenGov that provides residents, elected officials, and staff unprecedented access to the city’s finances and performance information. The OpenGov platform transforms complex financial data into an interactive, digital format that enables better analysis and understanding of the city’s finances. The intuitive design makes it easier to explore how taxpayer money is collected and utilized.

The platform may be accessed at parkhillsky@opengov.com

The OpenGov platform displays 4 years of City spending and revenue data in a user-friendly portal. Visitors can view historical revenue and expenditure trends over time and explore multiple views of financial data, including by fund, department, expense, or revenue type. For example, visitors to the platform may answer frequently asked questions such as “What were the General Fund Expenses by Department?” or “How much did the city collect taxes and fees?” and then share that information directly from the platform via email or on social media.

Mayor Matt Mattone led the initiative to make the city’s finances more transparent and understandable for all Park Hills residents. City Council members backed the endeavor and after several months of preparation the City is ready to roll out its initial financial data.

“Park Hills residents have long asked for interactive ways to review City expenditures and revenues; OpenGov allows residents and city officials alike the ability to access that information. Over the next few months the City will continue to develop and release more detailed reports, but today’s initial launch is the next significant step in the City’s continued commitment towards financial transparency,” said Mattone.

“By making its financial data easily accessible in an intuitive, digital format, the city is demonstrating its commitment to efficient, data-driven and open government,” commented Zac Bookman, CEO and co-founder of OpenGov.

With today’s launch, Park Hills joins a growing list of more than 1,000 leading cities, counties, state agencies, school systems, and special districts across the country that leverage OpenGov technology.
