Help Us ImproveListing our datasets is just a start. Please help us improve by letting us know what type of data you'd like to see and how your government can be more transparent. Please send your suggestions and ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our commitment to being more open
This Open Government site is our first step at being more transparent about what goes on behind the walls of Reno city government. We're also very interested in encouraging citizens to participate and collaborate more with us to solve important problems that affect residents and businesses.
Releasing government data is an important part of this effort. This site is a centralized area where you can see what kind of information is already available to you. Creative developers and programmers may even want to use this data to create civic tools and apps, like some folks did at Hack4Reno.
We're creating an internal "Open Government Team" with staff from all departments in order to identify other opportunities to share data and be more transparent. The team is also responsible for developing internal policies and procedures to keep the momentum moving forward.
