We know that citizens want and deserve open and transparent government.

Will County is the first local government in the nation to publish a computer-readable financial reports that that eventually will create greater transparency for citizens who wish to compare government expenditures across the United States and result in monumental savings to local governments that are borrowing money through bonds.
