Village of Mingo Junction Joins OhioCheckbook.gov
COLUMBUS – Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague today announced that the Village of Mingo Junction (Jefferson County) has joined OhioCheckbook.gov.
“OhioCheckbook.gov is a powerful transparency platform that gives taxpayers a direct look at where their money is going,” said Treasurer Sprague. “We’re proud to partner with the Village of Mingo Junction and provide a new level of transparency to residents.”
The Village of Mingo Junction is the third government entity in Jefferson County to join OhioCheckbook.gov. The village’s online checkbook includes more than 1,960 individual transactions that represent over $3.5 million spending from January 6, 2020 through August 24, 2020.
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
