In our continued commitment to provide overall transparency, the City of Cape Girardeau is proud to offer our citizens this Open Budget Portal. This portal provides a guided view through our budget and provides a transparent look at how we allocate public funds and is intended to be easy to read and useful for all audiences. The charts, graphs, and tables within the application are all highly interactive and we invite you to explore annual budget and actual activity since 2011. It is the City’s hope that access to this portal will result in a more informed and participating constituency. Budget amounts shown in this portal reflect original budgets adopted annually by the City Council of Cape Girardeau in accordance with Article VI of the City Charter.
