Local Agency Website Transparency Opportunities

Websites are one opportunity local agencies have to share information proactively with the media and the public. Is your agency interested in increasing its transparency efforts through its website? If so, what information should a local agency consider including on its website?

The items on the list were collected from various recommendations by local agency professional groups and practices employed by California local agencies.

Whether each item on the checklist makes sense for a given community depends on a number of factors, including community interests and the local agency’s available resources. This includes the resources to keep information current once it has been posted.

See PDF at right for this checklist.
