[ARCHIVED] New budget transparency tool gives unprecedented access to city finances

transparency tool

On July 28, the City of San Gabriel launched the Financial Transparency Portal to help local residents and business owners better understand the city’s budget decisions by giving them unprecedented access to city finances.

The portal, which can be accessed at, displays government spending and revenue detail dating back to 2012. It is a user-friendly, interactive tool that allows community members to see how taxpayer money is collected and spent each fiscal year.

Users can view revenue and spending trends over time and can separate the data by fund, department, expense or revenue type. In addition, the “checkbook” feature shows every individual expenditure transaction, data which can be filtered according to specific detail such as vendor name, date and dollar amount. Users can also see year-to-date spending in each category to track city spending throughout the fiscal year.

The new portal, operated with the OpenGov software, makes the city finances more transparent and understandable. The budget is one of the most important things we do each year in the city, and now it is even easier to access and understand.

For more information, contact Finance Director Tom Marston at 626.308.2800, ext. 4610 or
