The City of Sugar Hill will unveil a new web-based Digital Budget Book powered by ClearGov, a provider of Budget Clear Management software for local governments in 2024. Sugar Hill’s comprehensive Digital Budget Book will include the general fund and capital improvement project budgets. These budgets will be accessible online through an easy-to-navigate website with interactive content to make complex financial data easy to understand for all. The Digital Budget Book is mobile-friendly and ADA-optimized for assistive technologies and adheres to the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) best practices.
“We are excited to partner with ClearGov to provide comprehensive and transparent explanations of our budgeting processes, said City Manager Paul Radford. We encourage you to dive into the platform to discover all of the city’s services and the resources necessary to deliver them.”
The ClearGov platform allows residents to better understand what is included in the budget broken down by department. The public can see how funds are generated and allocated and have an understanding of how the city’s annual budget impacts community programs and services.
“With this platform, the City Council continues its commitment to enhancing transparency, fostering active community engagement, and streamlining operations within our sweet city, said Mayor Pro Tem Marc Cohen. As we build community, elevating the quality of life for our residents through top tier city services, downtown initiatives, and event programming, we recognize that budget transparency and a community-centered government remain some of our top priorities.”
Once launched, residents can access this data 24/7 to provide feedback or ask questions about a highlighted project.
The Digital Budget Book will be accessible through the city’s website. For more information or to be the first to view the budget book when it launches, visit www.cityofsugarhill.com or subscribe to the city’s monthly newsletter, “Snapshot.”
