COLUMBUS – Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague today announced that Union Township (Belmont County) has joined OhioCheckbook.com.
“We are excited to partner with Union Township on this important initiative,” said Treasurer Sprague. “We know that by giving residents an inside look at local government spending, they will take a greater interest in the decisions that have a lasting impact on their communities.”
