Northwest Signal: Village of McClure financial information online
December 6, 2017
COLUMBUS – Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel announced Tuesday the launch of the Village of McClure’s online checkbook on OhioCheckbook.com.
Launched in December 2014, OhioCheckbook.com puts all state spending information on the internet. OhioCheckbook.com recently earned Ohio the number one government transparency ranking in the country for the second year in a row.
McClure is the third village in Henry County to post its spending on the website. McClure’s online checkbook includes over 2,900 individual transactions that represent more than $594,000 of total spending over the past four years.
“I believe the people of Henry 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.”
“The Village of McClure is proud to join other government entities in Henry County in the OhioCheckbook.com initiative,” said McClure Treasurer Lisa Heft.
