The City of Schertz has made available the following information to provide clear and meaningful financial representation not only by posting financial documents, but also through summaries, visualizations, downloadable data and other relevant information. Our goal is to be transparent with the citizens and community. This will foster alignment with the community, council, and city staff to better direct us more effectively and efficiently toward the same goals. To do so the City has begun following state recommended guidelines and will be awarded “Transparency Stars” for each section posted correctly. The state has awarded Schertz the Traditional Finances Star and currently the City has applied to receive the Debt Obligations Star. Other upcoming sections include Contracts and Procurement, Economic Development, and Public Pensions.
