In the City’s ongoing commitment to transparency and fiscal responsibility, we are excited to announce the launch of a new online tool that allows the public to view revenue and expenses. This new feature, the “Open Finance Portal,” is located on the City’s website, www.bcnv.org. Access to the portal aligns with one of the strategic goals set in 2018, to “Achieve Prudent Financial Stewardship.”
Tyler Technologies developed the interactive web tool, “Socrata Open Data and Citizen Engagement.” The portal provides a look at the books, with detailed information regarding City revenues and expenditures. The tool makes it possible to view data for all budgets by function, fund, department, service type, and vendor. You can even view individual transactions. Financial data is updated each week and the website data is one‐way, so data cannot be manipulated or changed by non-employees.
Check out the “Open Finance Portal” by visiting: bcnv.finance.socrata.com/#!/dashboard.
