Financial Transparency

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON TAX INCREASE

The Comptroller of Public Accounts launched the Texas Comptroller Leadership Circle program in December 2009 to recognize local governments across Texas that are striving to meet a high standard for financial transparency online. They spotlight those local governments that are:

  • opening their books to the public
  • providing clear, consistent pictures of spending
  • sharing information in a user-friendly format that lets taxpayers easily drill down for more information.

They award Leadership Circle designees with a certificate reflecting their Circle Award level: Gold, Silver or Bronze.  The City of Canton received the Gold award, the highest level allowed,  in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
