The city of Troup gets transparent
Troup, Texas (KETK) — You can now see where and how the City of Troup spends its money.
A new feature on the city's website will show the amount of every check written and where every dollar of the budget is spent.
John Whitsell, the Mayor of Troup, tells KETK they want to be an open book.
" We're certainly not the first in the area to do it but we didn't want to be the last either. We wanted to be ahead of that curve before a mandate came out requiring us to do it", said Whitsell.
The new feature even allows you to download the budget to a spread sheet.
