“We’re excited to launch our transparency portal as part of our new website,” said Greg Preece, Assistant City Manager. “This tool will provide those interested in learning more about how our organization operates with a medium to explore that. As we get more acclimated with the product, I expect more reports to be made available.”

“Our open data portal is a win-win for the City of Fairfield and its citizens,” said OpenGov CEO Zac Bookman. “It gives government leaders the insights they need to make the right decisions, and creates greater transparency between the government and its citizens.”
Founded in 2012, OpenGov provides the OpenGov Smart Government Cloud™, an easy-to-use, cloud-based platform that features products for budgeting and planning, reporting and operational performance and open data. OpenGov’s open data portal aggregates, organizes and visualizes various data sets (like budgets, building permits and 311 requests) in a single portal.
It’s powered by CKAN, the open-source standard that the U.S. federal government, the European Union and hundreds of other agencies around the world use for open data, and includes tools like APIs that developers can use to build applications.
