Carrollton Named First Ever Recipient of State Transparency Award

Post Date:03/10/2016
traditional financeThe City of Carrollton is the first entity to be awarded a Traditional Finance Transparency Star by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts under the new Transparency Stars program.

The Transparency Stars program recognizes local governments for going above and beyond in their transparency practices.

"The City's funds are the citizen's funds, and we are committed to maintaining the highest level of transparency throughout our organization," said Mayor Matthew Marchant.

Under the Comptroller’s prior Leadership Circle transparency program, Carrollton’s Finance Department has earned the highest possible rating since 2011.

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.
