City of Twinsburg Joins OhioCheckbook.gov
COLUMBUS – Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague today announced that the City of Twinsburg (Summit County) has joined OhioCheckbook.gov.
“Through a streamlined and user-friendly website, OhioCheckbook.gov empowers taxpayers by shining a light on how public dollars are managed and spent,” said Sprague. “We’re pleased to welcome the City of Twinsburg as our latest partner on the platform, and I applaud their commitment to government transparency.”
The City of Twinsburg is the 29th public entity in Summit County to join OhioCheckbook.gov. The city’s online checkbook includes more than 35,000 individual transactions representing over $81 million in spending from January 2020 through December 2021.
“The City of Twinsburg is happy to partner with the Ohio Treasurer’s office and participate in the Ohio Checkbook program,” said Twinsburg Finance Director Sarah Buccigross. “Transparency is a priority for the city, and we appreciate the opportunity to add another tool for our community to see how their tax dollars are spent.”
OhioCheckbook.gov was launched in June 2020. The transparency website combined OhioCheckbook.com (previously administered by the Treasurer’s office) and Ohio’s Interactive Budget (previously operated by the Office of Budget and Management) to create a single, one-stop resource for taxpayers to learn more about spending at the state and local government levels.
By streamlining website administration, eliminating duplication, and reducing overall operating costs, OhioCheckbook.gov will keep government transparency at taxpayers’ fingertips for years to come.
