Transparency & Accountability
Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens so taxpayers can see exactly where their money is going. The City of Duncanville is committed to transparency in its operations and has established a comprehensive online resource for citizens to review a variety of government documents to address any questions that arise. The City has chosen to participate in the Texas Comptroller’s Transparency Stars program, recognizing local governments in their pursuit for openness and accountability to their citizens. Under this program, the City of Duncanville has been awarded the Traditional Finances Transparency Star. More information on this program can be viewed at www.texastransparency.org.
