Victorville's OpenGov Financial Transparency Tool
In an effort to enhance transparency and improve public engagement in city government, the City of Victorville partnered with OpenGov, a California-based company specializing in financial transparency, to bring visibility, openness and accountability to City finances.
Victorville is pleased to be first city in the High Desert area to publicly release its financial data on the OpenGov platform, allowing users unparalleled access to explore fiscal data in a web-based, interactive format.
