The City of Carrollton continues to be recognized for its dedication to open government as it has earned an Economic Development Transparency Star—the first entity to do so—from the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts under the new Transparency Stars program.
Additionally, Carrollton has earned a Transparency Star in the Debt Obligations category as well. Both accolades were awarded on Friday, August 26. The Transparency Stars program recognizes cities, counties, and school districts that provide easy online access to important financial data.
“Ongoing collaboration between the office of Economic Development and the Finance department provides the City the opportunity to share with the public this high level of meaningful data related to Carrollton’s economic initiatives,” said Economic Development Manager Andrea Roy. “This online effort provides clear and concise information located in one place. It’s not only a prime example of the City’s commitment to transparency, but fiscal responsibility as well.”
