Boone County Fiscal Court launches OpenGov; software tool provides access to county finances

Boone County Fiscal Court has launched OpenGov, a financial information tool providing greater transparency with respect to the County’s finances.

OpenGov is a financial software platform which is now available on the County’s website. OpenGov will allow any citizen the ability to view previous financial data and check register from June 2012 up to the current month in an interactive format.

“Government spending and fiscal responsibility is the highest priority for our administration,” said Boone County Judge/Executive Gary Moore. “Opengov.com is now a great tool for our staff to monitor our income and expenses. It is also available to our residents to track where their tax dollars are being spent.”

Founded in 2012 with headquarters in Silicon Valley, OpenGov provides cloud-based financial transparency for state and local governments. The OpenGov financial analysis platform transforms budget data into intuitive, interactive reports that make it easy to see how taxpayer money is collected and spent.

With OpenGov technology, governments collaborate more effectively through their budgeting process, make smarter data-driven decisions and build trust through greater transparency. The company currently serves nearly 300 governments across 38 states including Minneapolis, and Orange County, California.

A demonstration of OpenGov was provided by Chris Courtney, Boone County Business Support & Community Relations Coordinator, at the July 19 Fiscal Court meeting. The meeting can be viewed here (the demonstration begins at the 57-minute mark).
