Residents can now access key information on Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council at the click of a button.
People will be able to see details of individual payments of more than £500 made to council suppliers by logging on to the council’s website.
Information will also be given on the salaries, roles and responsibilities of senior officers at the council.
The details will be available for the first time from 15th December with information on payments to suppliers updated every month.
Residents can see which executive directors oversee a range of council services.
The information is being made available as the council aims to achieve greater openness in its financial business in response to the new Government’s call for transparency.
Council Leader Simon Tagg said: “Our residents provide the council with a significant amount of money that is then spent on providing services – it’s important that residents are aware of where their money is going.
“It’s vital that we are open when it comes to the payments that we make to suppliers and to the officers who work at the council.”
Cllr. Helen Morris, Cabinet member for resources and efficiency, said: “We are a publicly funded organisation and we have a duty to residents to be transparent in all that we do.”
