by: Kurt Schultheis Managing Editor

The town of Longboat Key has created a new fiscal transparency system that’s available on the town’s website.

The Information Technology Department developed a “Fiscal Transparency” system, which is an application that provides a unique level of transparency in municipal budgeting.

The application provides five years worth of current and historical expenditure data as well as graphing tools and also the ability to export the data to Microsoft Excel.

Taxpayers can view revenues budgeted for the current fiscal year, revenue amounts collected so far and updates on the town’s general, utility and building funds.

The system is updated daily and is updated on the town’s web site.

The application can be accessed through www.longboatkey.org.
