Gympie Regional Council has launched an online “transparency hub” to allow residents access to Council’s financial details.
The site displays council’s up-to-date financials as well as information about contractual and procurement expenses, capital works, organisational budgets and councillor expenditure.
The Gympie Regional Council Transparency Hub is a first for the region and will be updated with new data monthly.
“Your Council was elected in 2020 on the mandate we would open the doors of the organisation to you, the resident and ratepayer,” Mayor Glen Hartwig said.
“The Gympie Regional Council Transparency Hub is but only one of the ways this Council is working towards a more open, transparent and community orientated local government.
“It is still very much early days, and we will be looking at providing more data as time goes on.
“I would encourage all residents and ratepayers to have a look at the site.”
