In an effort to provide the community with access to City financial data, the City makes its budgets as well as other financial information available on the City website. You can find copies of the City’s current and historic budgets, annual audited financial statements, quarterly and year-end financial reports, and Bond information on both the Finance Department and Transparency pages.
This year the Finance Department is adding something new - an interactive reporting tool that allows the public to explore City financial data online in various, easy-to-use graphical formats selected by the user. The City has engaged OpenGov.com to assist with providing the public with this opportunity.
With this tool, the City provides historical financial data from 2009 to the current year. In addition, year-to-date monthly data is available from 2011, and will be uploaded regularly for the current year. Users can obtain the data they desire, drilling down to finite details or scaling up to the big picture. Users can also download the data as an excel spreadsheet.
Get started by visiting Saratoga Springs Financial Transparency Portal. The link will open a new window containing tips on how to use the OpenGov platform as well as FAQ’s to get you started.
