Financial Transparency
Our goal is to provide citizens with a transparent look at the county finances. Transparency ensures accountability and allows citizens to see how every penny of the money they send to their government is spent. This website allows you to scrutinize the county budget, quarterly and monthly reports, financial statements, financial policies, transparency portal, and links to additional county finance resources. We strive to hold your government accountable for how every dollar is spent.

The data presented in the transparency portal is raw data and may not agree with any audited financial statements.

The Transparency Portal works best if using the following browsers: Internet Explorer, version 9 and above, Chrome, version 31 and above, Safari, version 5.1 and above, and Firefox, version 32 and above. Additionally, the Portal may take a minute to load.
