Financial Transparency

Transparency Stars

Welcome to the City of Southlake’s Financial Transparency page. The purpose of this page is to provide citizens with information that shows how the City’s tax dollars, and other revenues are budgeted and spent in a user-friendly way.

To be more transparent, and promote enhanced accountability to our citizens, the City of Southlake has chosen to take part in the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts Transparency Star Program .This program recognizes local governments for going above and beyond in their financial transparency efforts by: 

  • Opening the financial books which include traditional finances, contracts and procurement, economic development, public pensions, and debt obligations
  • Providing clear and meaningful financial information by posting financial documents through summaries, visualizations, downloadable data, and other relevant information.
