City of Mason City's Open Budget Website
The Mason City Council has a goal for
financial transparency. Mason City
Finance staff completed the process for a July 31, 2016 launch of our
transparent financial project. Open Budget is part of Mason City's
commitment to improving transparency to our citizens by providing a guided view
through the City’s budgeted financial information. The charts, graphs,
and tables below are all highly interactive and we invite you to explore.
On December 1, the second phase of financial transparency
was launched. The Open Checkbook web
application provides up-to-date financial information about the City’s
expenditures. The tool provides greater access to information about City
spending decisions, which allows users to better understand how City dollars
are being spent. The user-friendly, interactive dashboard lets you search data
by department, vendor, and expenditure type.
Citizens can access Open Budget or Open Checkbook with the information 24/7. For more information,
contact the Finance Department at (641) 421-3613.
