When we talk about transparency in terms of government spending, we are referring to government opening its books to the public so that taxpayers can see exactly where their money is going. Transparency ensures that your taxpayer dollars are spent efficiently by making all decisions in the open and on the record. Transparency means that citizens can review and question policymakers' decisions and see the way tax dollars are spent.
The Comptroller’s Office for the State of Texas has an initiative to encourage all county and local governments to be transparent in their financial operations. This initiative is called the Texas Transparency Check-Up. The State Comptroller’s Office defines a high standard for transparency for a local government as:
- Opens its books to the public, providing clear, consistent pictures of spending
- Provides information in an easily accessible, user-friendly format
- Lets taxpayers easily drill down for more detailed information
The Town of Trophy Club embraces this philosophy and produces Budgetary Documents, Check Registers and Financial Reports to give you, the taxpayer, the ability to see how your money is being spent.
