Fiscal Transparency

The Town of Purcellville is committed to honest budgeting, responsible spending, and financial transparency. In this spirit, the Town has partnered with our financial software provider, Tyler Technologies, to provide our citizens and stakeholders a financial transparency portal via the Open Finance product. The Transparency-Purcellville portal is designed to bring visibility, openness, and accountability to our operations.

This site pulls financial data directly from the Town’s financial system and provides users the opportunity to view, filter, and analyze revenue, operating budget and vendor data. Visitors can examine the Town’s revenue sources, operating budget and vendor payments at various levels of detail such as fund, function, department, expenditure type and checkbook displays.  Options are also available to share or download data for further analysis.
