Using an online list of cities in Utah from a state government website, Sutherland Institute graded city websites using the Sunshine Review's 10-point transparency checklist. Sunshine Review is a non-profit organization that hosts a website where citizens can learn whether their state, city, county, and school district are meeting basic transparency standards. As part of those efforts, Sunshine Review created the checklist which gives 10 pieces of information that all levels of government should post on their websites to meet a basic standard of transparency.
The 10 items were chosen based on a survey of organizations that advocate for open, transparent government. These items are listed below along with a quick link to find the information on our website:
