In an effort to provide a more inclusive and transparent budget, the City of Sergeant Bluff is pleased to present our Financial Transparency portal. The City of Sergeant Bluff partnered with OpenGov to provide a new web-based financial transparency tool that dynamically presents the City’s revenues and expenses, from historical trends to line item level details.

There is nothing quite like being able to examine financial data by yourself through viewing charts and graphs and even downloading information that you want into an excel spreadsheet.  We invite you to give it a try and we’ve provided some helpful quick links below:

General Fund Expenditures by Department

Tips on Using the City's Financial Transparency Portal

  • The portal allows you to explore budget and historical finances in a simple graphical user interface. The main view includes a chart or graph, a legend and various controls to view expenses by departments out of various funds.
  • You can always access the portal by navigating to
  • You'll notice the title of the chart or graph you are viewing on top along with the account type selector. You can use the filter to see the data that is of most interest to you.
  • To focus on specific data - like a fund, department, expense type, or any combination - look to the left and use the menu on the side panel. These selectors allow you to specify exactly what breakdown you want the graph or table to represent. When you select "Filtered By" the data filter pops up and allows you to turn on or turn off selected filters for that category - funds, departments, expense type.
  • There are five different types of visual representations of the data - an area graph, an area graph by percentage, a line graph, a pie chart and a table. You can change your view at any time by simply selecting the different type of representation. The data will automatically convert. These functions are on the top right.
  • You can also download the data into a .csv spreadsheet or a .png image.
  • You can share the data, in any view, on a social network or by email.
