Village of Phillipsburg Joins OhioCheckbook.gov
COLUMBUS – Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague today announced that the Village of Phillipsburg (Montgomery County) has joined OhioCheckbook.gov.
“OhioCheckbook.gov is the one-stop resource for taxpayers hoping to learn more about government spending,” said Treasurer Sprague. “We’re pleased to have the Village of Phillipsburg as a partner in our quest for greater transparency and give residents a direct look at where their money is going.”
The Village of Phillipsburg is the 21st government entity in Montgomery County to join OhioCheckbook.gov. The village’s online checkbook includes more than 5,700 individual transactions that represent over $1.1 million in spending from January 2018 through December 2019.
“The Village of Phillipsburg prides itself on openness and integrity, and OhioCheckbook.gov gives us a robust platform to provide this important service,” said Phillipsburg Fiscal Officer Jessie Harsh. “We’re excited to share this new tool with our residents.”
In June 2020, Lt. Governor Jon Husted and Treasurer Sprague unveiled OhioCheckbook.gov. 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
