The Comptroller’s Office for the State of Texas has an initiative to encourage all county and local governments to be transparent in their financial operations called Texas Transparency.
The City of Rowlett embraces this philosophy and produces various financial documents to give you, the taxpayer, the ability to see how your money is being spent.
The following financial summary data is from the government-wide Statement of Activities in the City's Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). The government-wide Statement of Activities reports the results of the City's operations on an accrual basis of accounting. Revenues are recognized when earned, and expenses are recognized at the time the liability is incurred.
The per capita figures are based on the City's 2016 estimated population of 60,236.
