The OpenGov Smart Government Cloud™ is an easy-to-use, cloud-based solution for budgeting and planning, reporting, and operational performance and open data. The City is using OpenGov to track progress against its goals, make more informed decisions, and drive better outcomes.

The City will also be using this tool for their budget process to better collaborate across all departments and better communicate budget changes with administration during the entire process.

“Whether it’s spending a couple bucks on office supplies or spending millions on infrastructure improvements, the City of Granbury now has the insights it needs to better manage its budget.” said OpenGov CEO Zac Bookman.

The City of Granbury joins over 1,600 city, county and state governments, special districts and schools across the nation on the OpenGov network.
