Platinum Leadership Circle Award

The City of Odessa is honored with a Gold Leadership Circle Award from the State Comptroller's office. The recognition is a result of the City's setting the bar for financial transparency online by opening books to the public, providing citizens with a clear and consistent picture of spending and sharing information in a user friendly format.

The Comptroller of Public Accounts launched the Texas Comptroller Leadership Circle program in December 2009 to recognize local governments across Texas that are striving to meet the high standard for financial transparency online. There are three divisions within the Leadership Circle: Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze.

Please visit the Texas Comptroller's website for more information about the Leadership Circle.
