The town of Longboat Key received an award from the Florida Local Government Information Systems Association for its "Fiscal Transparency" website application during the association's annual summer conference in Boca Raton July 23.
The town was recognized for Innovative Use of Technology to Service for the website application.
The application developed by the town displays Longboat Key’s budget, expenses and revenues in simple pie charts and tables.
