There are multiple ways to access financial records from the city websites. Cash outflow reports are published bi-weekly by the city and includes vendors and amounts, but lacks finer details. The city financial transparency portal is an interactive data explorer, which can be used to break down spending categories and compare to the budget, and is updated weekly.
