Transparency & Financial Reports
The Council of Governments is financed through local, state and federal funds with state administered resources composing most of the $17.7 million budget. Local funds are provided by dues paid from member governments. Members are assessed dues based on their political identity and population. It was necessary for the FY ’05 new year to increase dues by $.05 per capita due to decreased funding from the Governor’s office; this is the first increase in 36 years.
Local Government Code 140.008 requires Political Subdivisions of the State to annually compile certain debt obligation data from the preceding fiscal year to increase local government debt transparency.
