Transparency in Government
As a matter of practice the City Manager of Colton has established a separate page to highlight the Colton "Transparency" in government actions.

Who has a budget online? Who shows detailed expenses? Who is setting the standard?
See how the City of Colton is stepping up to give taxpayers like you a transparent look at where your money goes.

Under direction from the City Manager, as recommended by professionals, in producing transparency the City of Colton has implemented financial transparency by posting three key financial documents online:

1.  2017-2018 Annual Budget  

2.  2017 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) 

3.  Warrant Registry located on City Council Agendas
      City of Colton Agenda Center
