Transparency

Transparency
Being transparent is much more than just opening the financial books to residents who have an interest, it is a state of operating where information on everything from finances and projects to codes of conduct and the ways to communicate with both City government and Elected Officials are in the open and easy to find. 

The City of Rancho Palos Verdes hopes the residents we serve find this transparency portal both informative and helpful.
