La Mesa's e-Budget Available on OpenGov

In an effort to provide the community with greater and easy access to the City’s financial data, we have partnered with OpenGov to provide a financial transparency reporting tool that displays the City’s finances over a six year period. Through the City's new transparency tool, OpenGov, users can view the city's e-Budget in a variety of formats by fund, department, or type. Users can drill down to finite details or scale up to view the big picture. Users can also download the data as an excel spreadsheet or share a particular view through social media.

We invite you to explore La Mesa’s OpenGov site by selecting the icon below. We have also provided a Frequently Asked Question/User Guide to assist you in navigating the site.
