Fresh on the heels of asking residents for their opinions via an electronic survey, the City of Murphy is taking yet another step toward openness and transparency by launching an online platform that provides access to the city’s financial records.
“The platform is powered by OpenGov, a pioneer in creating access to municipalities’ financial records,” City of Murphy IT Manager Wendle Medford said. “Now, Murphy residents can have unrestrained and user-friendly access to how taxpayer money is collected and spent.”
The OpenGov platform displays detailed records of municipal spending and collection in a user-friendly portal.
Users can view revenue and expenditure trends over time and explore multiple views of financial data, including by fund, department, expense, or revenue type.
