State comptroller: Cities and counties, post your budget
Friday, October 05, 2012
The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts is reminding cities and counties to share their newly adopted budgets online.
"The months of September and October are the start of a new fiscal year and a new budget cycle for many cities and counties in Texas," said the state agency in an email announcement. "This is a reminder that Senate Bill 1692, effective Sept. 1, 2011, requires those cities and counties that have a web site and have adopted a new budget for this fiscal year to post it online." The agency, in turn, must link to the posted budgets on its Texas Transparency website.
Jurisdictions that post their new budget or have a new website must also alert the comptroller office's Economic Development and Analysis division at 800-531-5441, ext. 3-4679, or email@example.com. Those that have posted both their current budget and annual financial report may qualify for the comptroller's Leadership Circle Award.
