It might be an understatement to say we are big on open data. So Open Budget, well, that is the golden ticket for us. Working with the City we’ve been able to put the budget through some visualization tools.
We’ve had the good fortune to work with the City of Charlotte’s Finance department with the FY2016 data they’ve published on the City’s open data portal. The tool is really cool and will get even better as we get historically data in there. We are working closely with the Finance department to get both FY2015 and FY2017 (when ready) information done we can really see how the City budget evolves and changes.
