Carrollton Earns Platinum Rating in Financial Transparency

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.
“Transparency is a core value for the City of Carrollton, and this award demonstrates our 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 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.
