Press Release - Ohio Treasurer's Office
YOUNGSTOWN – Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel and Mahoning County Auditor Ralph Meacham announced today the posting of Mahoning County employee salaries online to the Treasurer’s salary database at www.OhioTreasurer.gov/Local_Salary.
This fully searchable salary database is accessible at OhioTreasurer.gov and contains salary information for state workers, teachers and local government and education employees. Posting local government employee salaries online is the newest phase of the Treasurer’s Transparency Project, which was launched by Treasurer Mandel in 2011.
Mahoning County’s posting of local government employee salary information includes information on 1,996 employees representing over $73 million from 2015.
“I believe the people of Mahoning 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 local government salary information,” said Treasurer Mandel. “By posting local government spending online, we are empowering taxpayers across Ohio to hold public officials accountable.”
“By posting our salaries online, it further demonstrates our commitment to transparency,” said Auditor Ralph Meacham. “I appreciate the fine efforts of the Treasurer’s staff and I thank Treasurer Mandel for doing what he said he would, when he said he would, in a proficient and timely manner.”
Today’s announcement comes on the heels of Mahoning County joining OhioCheckbook.com. On September 24, 2015 Mahoning County became one of the first counties in Ohio to post their finances on OhioCheckbook.com and the Mahoning County online checkbook includes over 329,000 individual transactions that represent more than $978 million of total spending over the past five years.
