The portal is designed to bring visibility, openness, and accountability to our operations.

This site provides you the opportunity to view, filter, and analyze revenue, expense, and balance sheet financial data for the City of Broken Arrow. You can analyze financial trends for multiple years. Also, you are not limited to viewing your city’s financial data online. You can download the data (i.e. in Excel) for offline analysis and even share it on social media.
