LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro has established a new website it says will allow people to find and use information about city government more easily.
"We are committed to increasing the openness, effectiveness and transparency of city government and this new and improved site is helping with our goal by providing anytime access and views into the very latest city data in an easy to use format," Mayor Greg Fischer said in a news release.
The city boasts that the Center for Digital Government named its regular website, www.louisvilleky.gov, the best city government website in the country.
The Open Data Portal can be accessed at http://data.louisvilleky.gov. The city also says the process for providing the data is automated, which saves staff members time and save taxpayers money.
From Louisville Metro Government:
The data site offers the following:
Raw data sets for city expenditures, employee salaries, board members, park locations and amenities, animal services population results, news and calendar events and links to other sites with useful data and maps;
Fast data delivery;
The most accurate data with automatic uploading -- eliminating manual processes;
Published data sources via API that can be exposed with metadata and filtering views giving IT developers more flexibility in how they can use the data;
Cost savings as the site was built in-house without the cost of using an outside vendor which helps city government save on data maintenance and publishing;
A design that functions well with iPads, tablets, and smart phones.
