Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel Announces Launch of the Village of Golf Manor Checkbook on OhioCheckbook.com
COLUMBUS (5/9/2018) – Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel announced today the launch of the Village of Golf Manor’s online checkbook on OhioCheckbook.com. In December 2014, Treasurer Mandel launched OhioCheckbook.com, which sets a new national standard for government transparency and for the first time in Ohio history puts all state spending information on the internet. OhioCheckbook.com recently earned Ohio the number one government transparency ranking in the country for the third year in a row.
Golf Manor is the 13th village in Hamilton County to post their spending on OhioCheckbook.com. Golf Manor’s online checkbook includes over 4,400 individual transactions that represent more than $3.5 million of total spending over the past year.
“I believe the people of Hamilton 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,” said Treasurer Mandel. “By posting local government spending online, we are empowering taxpayers across Ohio to hold public officials accountable.”
“A prime mission of Village administration has been to simplify our financial reporting processes and make the financial sustainability and reporting of that as transparent as we can,” said Golf Manor Mayor Greg Schwartzberg. “OhioCheckbook.com is another tool that we look forward to using for our resident and business taxpayers and the general public.”
