Budget Infographics Provides Fiscal Transparency
The City of Smithville is pleased to announce the release of Budget Infographics. Citizens now have access to an “at-a-glance” look at revenue and spending in both the Utility and General Fund. Budget Infographics is subscription-based software service that converts the City’s annual budget from a PDF file into a user friendly, graphical format with one click drill-down to details. The software is capable of producing city-defined metrics that show historic trends and comparisons with other municipalities from within the region (e.g., Elgin, Bastrop, Luling, LaGrange, and Giddings). Budget Infographics is a useful tool to visually communicate to the public all the components of the City of Smithville’s annual budget.
