Use Our New Financial Transparency Tool to Understand City Budget

The City of Broken Arrow has launched a new digital platform powered by OpenGov that provides residents, elected officials, and staff convenient access to the City’s finances and performance information. The OpenGov platform transforms complex financial data into an interactive, digital format that enables better analysis and understanding of the city’s finances. The intuitive design makes it easier to explore how taxpayer money is used. The platform may be accessed at www.brokenarrowok.opengov.com.


The OpenGov platform displays multiple years of government spending and revenue detail in a user-friendly portal. Users can view historical revenue and expenditure trends over time and explore multiple views of financial data, including by fund, department, expense, or revenue type. For example, visitors to the platform may answer questions such as “What did the city spend on public safety over the past three years?” or “How much did the city collect on fees?” and then share that information directly from the platform via email or on social media.


“This is a great new tool that visually explains how taxpayer money is collected and spent,” said Mayor Craig Thurmond. “I’m very excited for the public to begin using the software. It’s part of the City’s on-going efforts to make our finances more transparent and understandable.”


With today’s launch, the City of Broken Arrow joins a growing list of more than 1,000 leading cities, counties, state agencies, school systems, and special districts across the country that leverage OpenGov technology.
