8 Local Government Public Dashboard Examples
Having a publicly available performance dashboard is one the best ways that local governments can build trust with the community while engaging employees.
It’s also really daunting.
Not only does it put all of your aspirations, accomplishments and setbacks out there for everyone to see, but you have to produce the data to populate it, maintain it, and get internal buy-in for greater organizational transparency and public accountability for outcomes. For many local government teams, it’s not just about launching a dashboard, but introducing cultural change.
So if you’re reading this blog, then kudos. You understand the value of publicly sharing your team’s progress against goals and are seeking ways to introduce this level of transparency and accountability into your local government organization.
This is a good place to start. We work with over 100 local governments across North America and many of them have an Envisio-powered performance dashboard published on their website. All Envisio public dashboards are fully ADA compliant (WCAG 2.1 AA conformant) so all users, regardless of disabilities or limitations, can access and enjoy the content.

I hope it’s useful. Let us know how else we can help.
