Madison Township Joins OhioCheckbook.gov
COLUMBUS – Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague today announced that Madison Township (Franklin County) has joined OhioCheckbook.gov.
“We’re pleased to welcome Madison Township as our newest Ohio Checkbook partner,” said Treasurer Sprague. “Through OhioCheckbook.gov, township residents will have a direct look at how their tax dollars are spent – empowering them to get involved in the decisions impacting their community.”
Madison Township is the 29th government entity in Franklin County to join OhioCheckbook.gov. The township’s online checkbook includes more than 4,300 individual transactions that represent over $13.5 million in spending from January 9, 2019 through December 31, 2019.
OhioCheckbook.gov was launched in June 2020. The new 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 levels of government.
By streamlining website administration, eliminating duplication, and reducing overall operating costs, OhioCheckbook.gov will keep government transparency at taxpayers’ fingertips for years to come
Robert Sprague became Ohio’s 49th Treasurer of State on January 14, 2019, bringing to the office his extensive experience working on financial matters in both the public and private sectors. Under Treasurer Sprague’s direction, the office manages the state’s $29 billion investment and $11 billion debt portfolios, collects and deposits all state revenues, and oversees custodial assets.
