Christian County announced Friday that it launched a new online Transparency Center powered by ClearGov, a provider of online budgeting and communications software for local governments.
The site will provide residents with an easy-to-understand, interactive breakdown of the county’s demographics and finances.
For individuals with disabilities, the site can be accessed using assistive technology including screen readers with voice recognition software.
According to a news release, the center will allow residents to see how the county’s funds are generated and allocated. There will be detailed information about the budget and community programs and services.
In some cases, information about Christian County can be compared to other counties.
“We are proud to have taken this proactive step toward a more open and accessible government and we’re excited to make this available to our community,” said Amy Dent, Christian County Auditor, in the release.
“These days, not everyone has the time to attend public meetings. The Transparency Center will make it easy and convenient for interested residents to stay informed.”
County officials urged the public to go online and explore the site.
