Welcome to Washington City's Financial Transparency Dashboard where we are committed to honest budgeting, responsible spending, and financial transparency.
This interactive tool hosted by OpenGov, provides annual and current year reporting of the City's revenues and expenses and is designed to help you understand how the City spends and receives money. At the touch of a button, users can create, analyze, and download customized reports summarizing up-to-date financial information.
A few things to keep in mind as you compare the financial data:
Some expenditures or revenues do not track year to year. For example, there may be an expenditure for a specific item or project in the past that the city no longer uses. These expenditure categories will only be visible for the years they were used.
It is common for citywide expenditures to exceed revenue as a result of capital projects that are funded with current year revenues as well as cash on hand.
Prior year actuals are reported post audit which includes year end closeout transactions such as the recording of depreciation and the conversion of capital outlay from expenditures to assets.
