Village of Trimble Joins OhioCheckbook.gov
COLUMBUS – Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague today announced that the Village of Trimble (Athens County) has joined OhioCheckbook.gov.
“OhioCheckbook.gov is the one-stop resource that gives taxpayers a window into government spending,” said Treasurer Sprague. “We’re proud to partner with the Village of Trimble and provide a new level of transparency to residents.”
The Village of Trimble is the 11th government entity in Athens County to join OhioCheckbook.gov. The village’s online checkbook includes more than 663 individual transactions that represent over $161,000 in spending from August 2019 through January 2020.
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
