PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT - (April 11, 2016)
Laramie, Wyoming - Albany County announced today the launch of a new digital platform powered by OpenGov that provides residents, elected officials and staff unprecedented access to the county’s finances. The OpenGov platform transforms complex financial data into an interactive, digital format that enables better analysis and understanding of the county’s finances. The intuitive design makes it easier to explore how taxpayer money is collected and spent. The platform may be accessed at https://albanycountywy.opengov.com.
The OpenGov platform displays 11 years of government spending and revenue detail in a user-friendly portal. Users can view historical revenue and expenditure trends over time and explore multiple views of financial data, including by fund, department, expense, or revenue type. The current year report provides insight into spending and revenues year-to-date. For example, visitors to the platform may answer frequently asked questions such as “What did the County spend on salaries over the past 11 years?” or “How much did the County collect on property taxes?” and then share that information directly from the platform via email or on social media.
