COLUMBUS – Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague today announced that Copley

“The Ohio Checkbook allows residents to see how
their hard-earned dollars are put to use in their communities," said
Treasurer Sprague. “Today, I'm happy to welcome Copley Township as our newest
partner in the effort to achieve greater government transparency."
Copley Township is
the fifth township in Summit County to join OhioCheckbook.com. The township’s online checkbook
includes nearly 60,000 individual transactions that represent more than $74.3
million in spending from January 2013 through August 2019.

resolution to pass the Ohio Checkbook is the last thing I do as fiscal officer,
I will consider my work for the people of Copley Township well done,” said
Linda Peiffer, Copley Township Fiscal Officer. “I care deeply about doing right
by the people of Copley Township. I am passionate about transparency.
Implementing the Ohio Checkbook means providing better communications between
community leaders and residents. It’s a win-win!”
