August 18, 2016

Open CheckbookThe City of Johns Creek has unveiled “Open Checkbook,” its online financial data portal that shows how tax dollars are being spent. 

The interactive portal, available via the City website, allows users to browse City expenditures through a visual interface, providing a guided and transparent view of how public funds are spent.

“By providing this financial data to our taxpayers, it emphasizes the City of Johns Creek’s commitment to transparency,” said Mayor Mike Bodker. “Online engagement tools like the Open Checkbook portal provide our citizens the ability to sort through the data with ease.”

Using charts, graphs and tables, users can find payment information by department, vendor, and expenditure type and information can easily be browsed through clicks or searched using the search field. 

The Checkbook feature provides a list of vendors, categories, and a description of spending, including payment details.
