Nelsonville Joins OhioCheckbook.gov
COLUMBUS – Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague today announced that the City of Nelsonville (Athens County) has joined OhioCheckbook.gov.
“I’m proud to welcome the City of Nelsonville as our newest OhioCheckbook.gov partner, and I appreciate their participation in this important transparency initiative,” said Treasurer Sprague. “Through this streamlined and user-friendly platform, residents can view how their tax dollars are being spent with just the click of a button.”
The City of Nelsonville is the 10th local government entity in Athens County to join OhioCheckbook.gov. The city’s online checkbook includes more than 134,000 individual transactions that represent $52 million in spending from fiscal year 2013 through fiscal year 2020.
“It’s simple really, Nelsonville residents deserve honest and transparent leadership, and we are taking the next step by putting the city’s finances online for anyone to see,” said Nelsonville City Auditor Taylor Sappington. “Thankfully, the Ohio Treasurer’s office has made this easy through OhioCheckbook.gov, and I am incredibly proud to take part.”
OhioCheckbook.gov was launched in June 2020. The new transparency website combined OhioCheckbook.com (previously administered by the Treasurer’s office) and Ohio’s Interactive Budget (previously operated by the Office of Budget and Management) to create a single, one-stop resource for taxpayers to learn more about spending at the state and local levels of government.
By streamlining website administration, eliminating duplication, and reducing overall operating costs, OhioCheckbook.gov will keep government transparency at taxpayers’ fingertips for years to come.
