NEWTON COUNTY, GA - Newton County’s financial information is more accessible than ever before thanks to the launch its new Open Finance web page.

The new web page, which can be accessed by clicking on the Open Finance Transparency Tool link under the Transparency menu on the Newton County website ( or going directly to the!/dashboard, is just another effort in the County’s goal to be transparent and accountable.

A part of Newton County’s Strategic Plan, the Open Finance page will assist in the County’s goal of Cultivating a Culture of Trust with the public. The web page allows access to detailed information regarding revenues and expenditures, payroll, vendor information and more.

“It is important because it is as transparent as we can get with our finances at your fingertips,” said Newton County Interim Finance Director Brittany White. “People can go on to see all of our vendor checks, payroll data, revenues we brought in and expenditures that we sent out.

“It is basically a consolidated look inside our financial software.”

The Open Finance software pulls data directly from what is inputted by the Newton County Finance Department each week. The data can then be viewed in an easy to digest manner with graphs and charts providing an up-to-date look at County finances.

“We believe in being as transparent as possible,” said Newton County Manager Lloyd Kerr. “This new finance tool will show everything that the County is doing with the funds entrusted to us by the taxpayers. This is just another step in being good stewards of taxpayer funds and being financially accountable.”
