When you’re the fastest growing county in the nation, have the most debt of any other County in your state, and need to cut costs while providing open transparency to the public – what do you do?

In addition to launching a dynamic and interactive transparency website to increase awareness and collaboration with constituents, they’ve been able to reduce internal reporting costs by 75%, prep-time for Grants reporting by 35%, and continue to identify new efficiencies and cost savings.
