In the Town of Bartonville's continuing dedication to transparency in government, the Town strives to provide its citizens with financial information about the Town. Our efforts have been recognized by the Texas State Comptroller's Office by awarding the Town of Bartonville with its highest Leadership Circle Award for Transparency in Financial Reporting. Transparency allows the citizens to review and question policymakers' decisions, examine documents, and hold public officials accountable for the way tax dollars are spent. Financial Transparency is government opening its books to the public so that taxpayers can see exactly where the money is going. More information on this program can be viewed at Texastransparency.org
