Financial Transparency Portal
With this tool, the City of Hesperia is providing historical financial data from FY 2005-06 to the current budgeted year. Each year following budget approval, a new year of data will be added giving the community a rolling multi-year snapshot of revenue and expenditure trends, which are available by department, and fund.
The City's financial information can be accessed by visiting Hesperia's OpenGov website
A few links to get you started:
- What does the City spend it's money on?
- How much of the General Fund is used for Police Services?
- What type of CIP projects are included in this year's budget?
- What are the City's Revenue sources?
Tips on creating new financial reports:
The main view includes a chart or graph, a legend and various controls to view expenses by departments out of various funds. You'll notice the title of the chart or graph you are viewing on top along with the account type selector. You can use the filter to see the data that is of most interest to you.
To focus on specific data - like a fund, department, expense type, revenue type or any combination - look to the left and use the menu on the side panel. These selectors allow you to specify exactly what breakdown you want the graph or table to represent. When you select "Filtered By" the data filter pops up and allows you to turn on or turn off selected filters for that category - funds, departments, expense type.
There are five different types of visual representations of the data - an area graph, an area graph by percentage, a line graph, a pie chart and a table. You can change your view at any time by simply selecting the different type of representation. The data will automatically convert. These functions are on the top right.
Some expenditures or revenues do not track year to year. For example, there may be expenditure for a specific item or project in FY 2005-06 that the City no longer uses. These expenditure categories will only be visible for the years they were used. After that, they will be zeroed out.
