New Transparency Site for City of Springfield Finances Unveiled


If you ever wanted to pour through the finances of Springfield City Government, beginning Wednesday you can.

 

The City of Springfield unveiled the website Springfield.OpenGov.com, a new website that allows the public to view the city's financial data in many different ways like bar graphs or pie charts.

 

Budget Director Bill McCarty announced the new portal Tuesday during the Springfield City Council meeting.

 

McCarty showed off how the public can look at things all the way down to personal services costs ... including salaries, pension costs and other items like overtime and even workers' comp payouts.

 

The transparency portal is part of a system that costs only $6,000 a year contract with OpenGov.com.

 

McCarty says OpenGov.com's Springfield site bypasses the Enterprise Resource Planner, another program to manage the city's budget numbers.

 

The Springfield.OpenGov.com site is password protected until Wednesday morning, according to McCarty.

 

He also says that the site currently doesn't involve City Water Light and Power data yet, but that is on the way.
