City Of San Marcos Embraces New Transparency Technology

SAN MARCOS, Texas, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The City of San Marcos, TX has adopted the use of the web based budget transparency website in support of increased transparency for its citizens.

Historically city and county budgets contain hundreds of pages of numbers that are often difficult for citizens to analyze and understand. The Budget Infographics website solves this problem by providing an efficient graphical user interface which allows citizens and government officials to easily understand the budget and drill down into the details with a click of the mouse.

"The adoption and use of the website to further simplify budget details through a graphical user interface shows our ongoing commitment to transparency by using the latest technology to support our citizens and meet city council goals," says Jim Nuse, San Marcos City Manager.

The State of Texas Comptroller's Office has awarded the City of San Marcos its gold award for meeting strict online financial transparency guidelines. The San Marcos City Council also has adopted Open Government Guidelines to support accountability, improved decision–making, public trust and informed participation in municipal government. 

"The response to our product from city councils, city managers and county commissioners has been very positive," said Peterson. "It is encouraging to see the various governing bodies embracing methods and technologies to help their citizens understand how their tax dollars are being spent."
