State treasurer announces four Clark County partnerships


Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel announced Wednesday the launch of the Springfield Twp., Madison Twp., Village of Catawba and the Tecumseh Local Schools online checkbooks on OhioCheckbook.com.

In December 2014, Mandel launched OhioCheckbook.com, which recently earned Ohio the No. 1 ranking in the country for government transparency.

Springfield Twp., the Village of Catawba and Madison Twp. are the first local governments in Clark County to post their spending on OhioCheckbook.com. Tecumseh Local Schools is the sixth school district in Clark County to partner with the Treasurer’s office.

  • Springfield Twp.’s online checkbook: 4,000-plus individual transactions that represent more than $9 million of total spending over the past three years.
  • Madison Twp.’s online checkbook: 5,000-plus individual transactions that represent more than $1 million of total spending over the past three years.
  • The Village of Catawba’s online checkbook: 2,000-plus individual transactions that represent more than $374,000 of total spending over the past three years.
  • Tecumseh Local Schools’ online checkbook: 41,000-plus individual transactions that represent more than $43 million of total spending over the past two fiscal years.

“I believe the people of Clark County have a right to know how their tax money is being spent, and I applaud local leaders here for partnering with my office to post the finances on OhioCheckbook.com,” Mandel said in a release. “By posting local government spending online, we are empowering taxpayers across Ohio to hold public officials accountable.”
