The City of Ashland Partnering with OpenGov to Further Increase Effectiveness and Accountability
https://ashlandor.opengov.com Gives the City of Ashland Officials Easier Access to Valuable Data, and Empowers Them to Share that Data With the Community
ASHLAND, OR– The City of Ashland has announced that it’s partnering with
OpenGov- the leader in government performance management - to further increase budgetary effectiveness, transparency and accountability.
The City of Ashland is using OpenGov’s open data portal
to give government officials easier access to its data sets so they can make more informed decisions. It’s also using the portal to launch ashlandor.opengov.com to share data with the community. The portal features valuable insights, like how much revenue has been generated by property taxes.
The OpenGov Cloud™ is an easy-to-use, cloud-based solution for budgeting, operational performance, and citizen engagement. OpenGov’s open data portal aggregates, organizes, and visualizes various data sets. 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. It also includes tools like APIs that developers can use to build applications.
“Our open data portal is a win-win for the City of Ashland and the community,” said OpenGov CEO Zac Bookman. “On average, governments receive 20 percent less requests for information after they launch their OpenGov open data portals. That means citizens are getting the information they need, and it saves governments time and energy that can be spent elsewhere.”
The City of Ashland joins over 1,800 city, county and state governments, special districts and schools that rely on OpenGov to be more effective and accountable.
