Government Transparency

We've heard you, loud and clear.

In Placer County, we are committed to making it easy for you to have the information you need to be our partner in making this the greatest place on earth to live, work and play. And you shouldn’t need a PhD in government speak to know what’s going on.

This transparency site is a launching pad for you to find many of the things we know our citizens are looking for. Including access our financial information in an easy-to-understand graphic format, you can find out about our elected officials and the meetings they run, contracts we’ve issued, job classifications and employee compensation and much more.

While this will always be a work in progress, we are passionate about improving the ease and functionality of these pages (and the rest of our website, for that matter) so that you can find what you’re looking for quickly and easily. Our hope here is to not only inform you, but also to empower you – so we can work together to build a better future.
