Financial Transparency

In December 2009, the Comptroller of Public Accounts launched the Texas Comptroller Leadership Circle program to recognize local governments across Texas that strive to meet a high standard for financial transparency online. The Comptroller highlights local governments that open their books to the public, providing clear, consistent pictures of spending and sharing information in a user-friendly format that lets taxpayers easily drill down for more information. In an effort to achieve these same goals, the City of Dayton has created this page. Please contact the Finance Department for any missing links or information that may be unclear to the viewer.
