Message from Supervisor Judi Bosworth:



Welcome to OpenGov! 

Since day one of my administration I have worked tirelessly to increase transparency in Town government by incorporating more and more information on our website. I am a firm believer in the fact that this is your government and you have the right to know what is going on and how your tax dollars are being used. That is why I am very excited to announce our new link to OpenGov. This feature will allow you, the taxpayer, to track every dollar of the Town budget and actually see where your money is going.

I believe that you will find it easy and useful tool. If you have any questions, we are here to assist you. Just call 311.

Warm Regards, 

Judi Bosworth
Town of North Hempstead Supervisor
