Example of financial reports in OpenGov.
The Village of Woodridge has developed the Financial Transparency Portal to give you, the Woodridge stakeholder, a transparent view of municipal revenues and expenses. Through OpenGov, the public is able to interact and learn more about the Village's financial data by analyzing financial trends from 2009 to year-to-date from a micro point-of-view (Public Works Department salaries) to a macro point-of-view (total budget for the Administration Department). Also, you are not limited to viewing the information online as you can download the data for offline analysis at a time and place that it is convenient for you.

To access the Village's OpenGov Financial Transparency Portal, please click here and you will be directed to the site.

Tips on Using OpenGov
  • 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 https://woodridge.opengov.com/transparency
  • 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.
  • If you have any questions on how to utilize OpenGov, please contact the Finance Department at (630) 719-2902.
