OpenBlaine - Transparent Community Data

OpenBlaine-300 (2)

On March 1 the City of Blaine launched a new government transparency portal called OpenBlaine. In an effort to put more data at the fingertips of Blaine residents, city staff has worked with vendor OpenGov to create this new way to understand how the city operates.

OpenBlaine will allow the general public to easily dig into city budget data as well as other non-financial data points collected by the city. Users will be able to see the different revenue streams that fund city operations or breakdown city spending by department. Non-financial data will include a look at the number of building permits issued and inspections completed per year and how the hail storm of June 2017 caused a huge spike in these numbers.

In the future, the city will continue to develop new data sets to be reported via OpenBlaine. How much does it cost to plow the entire city after a snowstorm? What is the economic impact of the 3M Open? What is the average response time for emergency services? These are all examples of data sets that could be future topics featured on OpenBlaine.

Explore OpenBlaine today at blainemn.gov/openblaine.
