Texas Transparency in Government
The City of Fate earned the Platinum Award in the Leadership Circle program, sponsored by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. The Platinum Award is the highest level of achievement.
The Leadership Circle program was developed in 2009 to recognize local governments across Texas that strive to meet a high standard for financial transparency. Among the criteria evaluated are accessibility of books to the public; providing clear, consistent pictures of spending; and sharing information in a user-friendly format that lets citizens drill down for more detail.
