A proposal to publicize all of the city’s spending and financial transactions in an “online checkbook” will be discussed at a Dec. 8 work session of the Atlanta City Council committees.

The idea of making city government spending more transparent was jointly proposed earlier this year by Councilmembers Felicia Moore and Mary Norwood.

Residents are welcome to attend the Dec. 8 work session and comment on the proposal. The work session will start at 4 p.m. in Committee Room No. 1, Atlanta City Hall, 55 Trinity Ave.
