The Finance Department’s mission is to ensure the City’s financial stability; maximize the use of its financial resources; and provide superior financial, accounting, treasury, and budgeting information and services, while maintaining the highest level of public trust.
The City is launching two new sites, Camas Open Budget and Camas Open Spending in conjunction with the 2017-2018 Biennial Budget process. This will allow the City to share financial information through an "open data" portal.
Camas Open Budget allows the user to interact with revenues and expenses of the City both budget and actuals. View historical data as well as proposed budget data for areas of your interest. In addition, Capital Open Budget provides not only how projects are funded, how much they costs but also the timeline and maps to see what is happening in your backyard.
Camas Open Spending is a portal similar to the City’s check register. You can view the data in a number of different ways regardless of how it was spent, i.e. wires, ACH, checks or credit card transactions.
The City’s goal is to be financially transparent, these tools provide a way to do that. More transparency is on its way!
