Knowing that good decisions can only come from good information, my office undertook the task to try to develop a quick easy-to-understand way for policymakers and citizens to assess the financial health of the county and to look at long-term trends. In creating the HEART database, we gathered data from various flings and reports from several entities and displayed it as simply and visually as possible. using the input of the County Judge Executive and the Fiscal Court Many thanks go to Assistant County Attorney Kyle Evans for his hard work in making this database a reality.
While this information is very valuable to county decision makers. believe it is just as important to make it available to every citizen of the county. As President Lincoln said, "Let the people know the facts. and the country will be safe.'
