The City of Williamsburg’s website tied with Alexandria’s for 8th in the state for financial transparency, according to a study by the Thomas Jefferson Institute for Public Policy, which examined the websites of Virginia’s 134 localities.
Williamsburg was also one of two cities that, in addition to posting its annual Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, posts monthly financial updates.
“Making the budget process as transparent as possible is a priority
of the City, and as technology improves we continue to look for ways to
make both the information and the way it’s presented as clear and
informative as possible,” Mayor Jeanne Zeidler said.
