DUBUQUE – A new online tool is breaking down the City’s budget and making it more accessible to the public.
The City’s Budget page contains a link where people can look at how Dubuque’s budget is spent.
One of the main reasons for the launch is greater transparency.
Budget Director for the City of Dubuque Jennifer Larson states that “By state law, we’re required to publish our expenses and revenues once a month, but again, that’s not a very interactive, easy to understand method. But with this tool, it’s a lot more interactive.”
Larson noted that the site has budget data ranging back from 2007 up to 2016.
To use the budget tool for yourself, visit the City of Dubuque’s budget page.
