Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar recently awarded League City a star in traditional finances for being transparent in sharing information.

The comptroller’s Transparency Stars program recognizes local government for outstanding efforts in transparency and making spending and revenue information available to the public.

The Texas comptroller’s office launched the program to recognize cities, counties and school districts that provide greater government transparency by providing easy online access to important financial data. Other areas local government entities can apply for stars in include contracts and procurement, economic development, public pensions and debt obligations.
