The City of North Miami's staff occasionally get questions at Council meetings, via email, and on social networks about its finances such as, "Are the city's expenses rising?" or, "How much do employee salaries and benefits cost?"
That's why we are excited to share that we've partnered with OpenGov to help answer those questions in greater detail than ever before. Today, we introduce a beta site that features interactive graphics that shows you exactly how North Miami spends your taxpayer dollars. We'll use this site throughout the year to provide insights on topics and answer questions from community members like you.
