Transparent Frederick
Transparent Frederick is The City of Frederick's initiative to provide citizens the ability to see their tax dollars in action.  These intuitive applications will allow the public unprecedented access to the City's finances by giving them the ability to look at different sets of financial data.  This initiative will produce multiple applications over the next couple of months.  Please stay tuned and enjoy the first application.

How Your Money is Spent
The first Transparent Frederick application available to the public will show citizens where their tax money is being spent.   The public will be able to search our financial data just like they were using our financial software.  This application will show how the City spends money from the fund level to the department level all the way down to the actual purchase order used to pay a vendor.   If you want to how the City spends its money, you can find it here.
