Miamisburg City School District Joins OhioCheckbook.gov
COLUMBUS – Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague today announced that the Miamisburg City School District (Montgomery County) has joined OhioCheckbook.gov.
“With just a few clicks, OhioCheckbook.gov gives residents a direct look at how their tax dollars are being spent,” said Treasurer Sprague. “By making spending information easily accessible, Ohioans can gain important insight into the decisions being made in their communities. We’re proud to welcome the Miamisburg City School District to the OhioCheckbook.gov platform and applaud the district’s commitment to transparency.”
The Miamisburg City School District is the 23rd public entity in Montgomery County to join OhioCheckbook.gov. The district’s online checkbook includes more than 190,000 individual transactions representing nearly $437 million in spending from January 2016 through December 2021.
“The Miamisburg City School District is pleased to partner with the Ohio Treasurer's office to begin publishing our finances online for taxpayers to view at no cost to them,” said Miamisburg City School District Treasurer John Espy. “We believe in providing our entire school district community with the resources to know how their taxpayer 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.

Under Treasurer Sprague’s direction, the office manages the state’s $39 billion investment and $11 billion debt portfolios, collects and deposits all state revenues, and oversees custodial assets.
