Financial Transparency

The Texas Comptroller encourages local governments to open their books to the public, provide a clear, consistent picture of organizational financial activity, and share information in a user-friendly format that lets taxpayers easily drill down for more information.

The City of Manvel is committed to transparency with its residents and stakeholders. Our Finance Department ensures timely, meaningful, and reliable disclosures about the organization's financial performance which can be viewed by residents at any time. We are proud to serve our community and are dedicated to making sure we are spending fairly and responsibly on their behalf!

For more information about transparency in government, visit the Texas Comptroller's Office website.
