Albany, NY (WIBX) - A new section of the state Comptroller's "Your Money New York" website that will help local governments is up and running.

Comptroller Tom DiNapoli says the new section offers government resources, including information on how local governments can empower residents through financial education.

It also includes tools to help officials carry out their own financial and budgetary responsibilities.

The website, www.yourmoneynewyork.com, was introduced by DiNapoli in 2009 to give New Yorkers easy access to information and useful resources on money-related manners.
