An audit of the Palatine Township area in Northwestern Cook County revealed only 1 of 12 local
government agencies graded received a passing grade on basic online
The “Local Transparency Project”, a project of the non-partisan Illinois Policy Institute, consists of two separate transparency audits 6 weeks apart on 10 different online transparency categories
including elected & administrative official contacts, meetings,
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), budgets, financial audits,
expenditures, employee’s salary & benefits, contracts, lobbying, and
taxes & fees information.
*The Village of Palatine originally scored a 46.5 on the second audit but requested a re-score after making additional improvements.
Thanks to Eric Di Silvestro, long-time resident of Palatine, for his work on this project.
I attended the meeting on 1/22/11 and I was very impressed on what you are doing. I am not that good on the computer and struggle with EXCEL can do WINDOWS and have an APPLE which is even more difficult for me. So I don't know what I could do to help. I live in Palatine.
