The Sutherland Institute

The Sutherland Institute in Utah issued a transparency report that graded Utah cities according to a ten-point checklist.[6] The Institute spent 20 minutes on each website searching for checklist items to ensure that transparency items were both present and easily accessible. 111 cities were graded and averaged a score of roughly 5 points, which is the equivalent of a C- transparency grade.[7]
