CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Converse County has launched a page on its website that allows the public to examine online how the county gets and how it spends its money.

County Treasurer Joel Schell tells the Casper Star-Tribune (https://bit.ly/1vxOdJH ) that there has been a lot of public interest in the county’s revenues and expenses, and now the county’s website lets people answer their questions for themselves.

County officials worked with California-based OpenGov to post eight years of revenue and spending in graphs and charts that can be customized. The county pays $6,000 a year to OpenGov.

OpenGov spokeswoman Brooke Simmons says at least 150 local governments in 30 states use its software. Converse County is the first in Wyoming to make that much information available online.
