Longview residents looking for information on the City’s finances have a new tool - the City’s Open Finance Portal.
The interactive website provides citizens and stakeholders access to current municipal government financial information. The platform pulls financial data directly from the City’s financial system and is refreshed daily.
“We have always prided ourselves on being transparent and making sure our residents could find the information they are looking for,” Finance Director Angela Coen said. “This new tool continues that mission and builds upon our tradition of transparency.”
The portal provides users the opportunity to view, filter, and analyze revenue, operating budget, actual spending, and vendor data. Users can examine detail such as budgetary fund, function, department, expenditure type, and checkbook displays. Options are also available to share or download data for further analysis.
The Open Finance Portal can be found at LongviewTexas.gov/Transparency. The City’s website also contains meeting agendas and minutes, the annual budget, the Code of Ordinances, and much more.
