Mack’s Guide to the Newtown Township Website. Lesson 2: Accessing Financial Information

Mack’s Guide to the Newtown Township Website. Lesson 2: Accessing Financial Information | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

This lesson will show you how to access important township financial information on the Newtown Township website. It specifically will focus on how to find Bills Lists and Treasurer’s Reports on the Newtown Township's website and how to analyze the data for useful insights.

There’s lots of interesting financial information available such as the approved annual budgets, financial statements – which are yearly audits - and monthly treasurer’s reports, etc. These are high-level data, but not data about who gets paid for what. That's the kind of information found in Bills Lists.

The Treasurer’s Report gives you expenditure information to-date for each department such as the Police Department and compares that with the total yearly expenditure planned for by the budget.
