Sunshine Review completes county effort nationwide

Sunshine Review, a site devoted to government transparency, openness and accountability at the state and local level, has competed an effort to evaluate all United States counties on their transparency.

The site’s transparency checklist explains the criteria used to determine the openness of a governmental body. The page county websites supplies more detail.

To view the information for your county, start by clicking on Sunshine Review. You can then find your county by click on a map of the states. Or, you could use the search feature.

How does Sedgwick County do? Not very well. Based on Sunshine Review’s evaluation: “The website does not have information on committee meetings, building permits, zoning information, audits, contracts, lobbying, or tax breakdowns.”
