The City of Lawrenceville has added additional financial transparency to its operations with the addition of Open Checkbook to its Financial Services Department. Open Checkbook can be accessed through the city website by clicking the “Financial Transparency” button.
“The City of Lawrenceville is delighted to offer a sophisticated level of financial transparency to our citizens,” said Mayor David Still. “We are one of only five communities in the state of Georgia offering this particular type of digital transparency product.”
The site, created by Socrata, is updated weekly with current fiscal year budgetary numbers and provides a transparent look at city expenses with interactive charts, graphs and tables. Financial information is available for capital projects, operating, vendor-related, and payroll expenditures.
In addition to the current fiscal year, city budgets dating back to 2019 are available on the site. Digital versions of the most recent Annual Comprehensive Financial Reports and Budget Report are also available.
