In an effort to provide residents a deeper and consistently updated look at the city's revenues and expenses, the City of Keller is pleased to present our new Financial Transparency portal.

Keller has partnered with OpenGov to offer citizens and staff around-the-clock, web-based access to city finance information that they can view, filter, analyze, print and share. Users will find everything from historical trends to line-item details in charts and graphs that are easy to understand and tailored to citizens' interests.

 Quick Reminders: 

  • Financial data included on the platform is for the City of Keller only; independent government agencies like Keller ISD and Tarrant County are not included.
  • Some expenditures and revenues do not track year to year. For example, there may be expenditure for a specific item or project in the past that is no longer part of our annual budget. These expenditure categories will only be visible for the years they were used; after that, they will be zeroed out.

Transparency Stars

The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts created the Transparency Stars program to recognize local governments who provides readily accessible financial information and promotes transparency within their organization.  Local governments have the opportunity to earn stars in the areas of traditional finances, contracts and procurement, economic development, public pensions and debt obligations.  For more information on the program, please visit the Comptroller’s Transparency Stars website.
