Financial Transparency

The City of Fernley is committed to honest budgeting, responsible spending, and financial transparency.

The City of Fernley has partnered with OpenGov to provide residents and stakeholders with the Financial Transparency Portal. The portal is designed to bring visibility, openness, and accountability to our operations. This site provides you the opportunity to view, filter, and analyze revenue, expense, and balance sheet financial data for the City of Fernley. You can even download the data (i.e. in Excel) for offline analysis.
