Town of Wayland Launches Fiscal Transparency Center

Town of Wayland 5/23/17: Town of Wayland Launches Fiscal Transparency Center. Partners with ClearGov to Bring Clarity to Government Finances

The Town of Wayland is pleased to announce that it has partnered with ClearGov, a leading municipal transparency and benchmarking platform, to launch an infographic-based fiscal transparency center.

The new tool provides taxpayers an easy-to-understand, visual breakdown of Wayland finances, as well as insights into the Town’s demographics and student-age population. The site also informs visitors as to how each budget item compares to neighboring communities.

Wayland is part of a growing movement of Massachusetts municipalities that are taking transparency to a new level on ClearGov platform, which also showcases basic profiles of every municipality in the state. Wayland has added detailed revenues and expenditures breakdowns of its General Fund, as well as Debt and Reserve Funds. The Town has also added commentary to many of the metrics and graphs on the site to help lend context to the figures for residents.

ClearGov sources publicly available financial data on municipalities to create easy-to-understand transparency websites for thousands of municipalities across the United States, which are made available to the public for free. Municipalities can choose to upgrade and enhance their publicly available transparency site with more robust information and provide context through commentary on the figures.
