Municipal Transparency Portal
A response to the Governor’s and Legislature’s initiative to promote governmental transparency, the Municipal Transparency Portal improves current financial reporting required under Rhode Island General Laws §45-12-22.2 and §44-35-10 by utilizing a streamlined approach with consistent and compatible definitions, while presenting collected data in an accessible, centralized location.
The Division of Municipal Finance is working to increase its use of visualizations to display complex data sets. By using descriptive statistics, we can present the main features of these data sets in a more intuitive way to our audience.
