Texas ComptrollerThe Texas Comptroller Leadership Circle awarded Carrollton a platinum rating, the highest possible, for its achievements in financial transparency for the second year in a row.

In 2014, the Texas Comptroller enhanced the Leadership Circle program by adding the Platinum Award level.The new level of accolade spotlights entities that go above and beyond in providing financial transparency. Carrollton earned this Platinum level both last year and again for 2015.

“Transparency is a core value for the City of Carrollton, and this award demonstrates our continuing commitment to open government,” said Mayor Matthew Marchant. "We hold ourselves to high standards in all departments and will make every effort to keep doing so.”

The City works hard to remain accountable to the public on how spending and budgetary issues are handled. The City’s website is equipped with the latest fiscal year’s budget, check register, comprehensive annual financial report, unclaimed funds and property, and debt information. In addition, there are up to seven years of past annual budgets available. The financial reports provided on the City’s website give taxpayers a transparent look at where their money goes.

The Texas Comptroller Leadership Circle program was launched by the Comptroller of Public Accounts in 2009, and recognizes local governments across Texas that strive to meet a high standard of financial transparency online.
