In Oshkosh, Wis., Transparency Is Key



March 6, 2013 By

In Oshkosh, Wis., transparency policies are a priority. In the city, these policies make agencies run more efficiently, and provide the public with more services and information. 

And on March 10, the city will showcase its commitment to transparency during Sunshine Week – an event that encourages governments from across the nation to discuss how transparency can provide value to the public.

“We really put a lot of emphasis on making as much of city hall information available on the Web as possible,” said IT Manager Anthony Neumann, adding that Oshkosh provides the public with access to documents across 12 departments using Laserfiche’s WebLink software. 

Sunshine Week will take place March 10-16, 2013, driving public discussion on issues of government transparency. The event was created by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Bloomberg LP, American Society of News Editors, and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. More information can be found at SunshineWeek.org.

Oshkosh does a great job at providing information via their website and making it easy for the average user to gain access. Well deserved recognition for the city, Tony, and his team.
