Terms of Service

Visual Budget is a free open-source tool available for download from our GitHub repository, distributed under the Apache 2 license.

However, we understand that not every city and town has staff available to download and install Visual Budget. To enable all cities and towns to use Visual Budget easily, VisGov is providing a setup and installation “starter kit” as a service at an affordable price. Our team of consultants has deep experience with both web technologies and municipal finance – and we’re really nice people to work with.

Starter Kit

For the city or town (or non-governmental organization) in eastern Massachusetts


To help you get started, we offer our “Starter Kit”, which includes:

  • Registration of your own domain, typically
  • Deployment of your site, branded for your city or town
  • 8 hours of assistance preparing your data, which is often enough to finish and launch the site from scratch
  • Hosting for two years on our servers
  • Updates and maintenance for two years

If you’re interested in finding out more about our Starter Kit service or have any other questions, just let us know.

If you’d like to engage our services ala carte, we offer the following:

  • Hosting – $300/year
  • Domain registration – $25/year
  • Data preparation – $100/hour
