WFMJ: Trumbull County becomes more transparent with finances

WFMJ NBC Youngstown
March 23, 2016 

On Wednesday, officials from Trumbull County, Howland Local Schools and Weathersfield Township joined the Ohio Treasurer's office in revealing financial information about public employees by using a state employee data website.

The website shows information about how many people are employed by the state, employee salaries budget, and efforts to reduce the amount of paid overtime.

“The most important thing is that people get a clear picture of what we spend our money on because there's always so many misconceptions out there,” says Scott Lehman, Howland School Board President.

The website recently named Ohio the number one ranking in the United States for government transparency.

Trumbull County is among 14 other counties who use the website to post their spending. It's online checkbook shows over 145,000 individual transactions, representing more than $1.3 billion of total spending in the past three years.

Howland Local Schools is the third district in the county and Weathersfield Township is the first township to use the website. Howland's checkbook has more than 30,000 individual transactions that include more than $84 million over the past three fiscal years.

Weathersfield Township includes 4,000 transactions that represent over $2 million in total spending over the past year.
