Daily Jeffersonian: Jackson Township makes records more 'transparent'

Daily Jeffersonian
June 2, 2017

BYESVILLE -- The Jackson Township Board of Trustees has taken a step to make their records as "transparent" as possible to the taxpayers of the township.

Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel reported that Jackson Township is the first township in the county to post its spending on OhioCheckbook.com. The township's new online checkbook reflects that the trustees have made more than 3,600 transactions representing more than $2.3 million of total spending over the past four years.

"I believe the people of Guernsey County have a right to know how their tax money is being spent, and I applaud local leaders here for partnering with my office to post the finances on OhioCheckbook.com," Mandel said. "By posting local government spending online, we are empowering taxpayers across Ohio to hold public officials accountable."

Mandel launched OhioCheckbook.com in December 2014 and put all state spending information on the Internet for the first time. He believes that it sets a new national standard for government transparency.

"OhioCheckbook.com recently earned Ohio the Number One government transparency ranking in the country for the second year in a row," he said.

Entities eligible to join OhioCheckbook.com include cities, villages, counties, townships, school districts, library districts and other special districts. There is no cost to the local entity for joining.
