Lapeer County, Michigan, Looks to Take Its Budget Online with OpenGov

Lapeer County, MI, will take its published budget online thanks to partner, OpenGov, the leader in modern cloud software for our nation’s cities.

Officials from the County, located north of Detroit, had a primary goal: Win the GFOA Distinguished Budget Award. So, the County was looking  to transform its published budget from paper and Excel spreadsheets to an online budget book that follows GFOA budget best practices. They will succeed with OpenGov.

With Excel spreadsheets, Lapeer County’s budget book was at risk for errors, and staff’s time wasn’t being used efficiently with such a manual process. With OpenGov, staff from multiple departments will be able to work in an easy-to-use and powerful online workspace that will empower them to collaborate, edit, and publish the budget book online without the headache of conflicting versions, tedious manual updates, or recreating graphs and tables.

Lapeer County joins more than 1,100 public sector organizations leveraging OpenGov to revolutionize their budget book with cloud-based software designed specifically for the needs of government.
