Harrison Township Joins OhioCheckbook.gov

COLUMBUS – Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague announced today that Harrison Township (Muskingum County) has joined OhioCheckbook.gov.

“The Ohio Checkbook provides Ohioans with a clear and direct look into the important spending decisions made at the local level,” said Treasurer Sprague. “The Treasurer’s office is proud to welcome Harrison Township as its newest transparency partner, and we commend the local leaders for providing its residents with easy access to this information.”

Harrison Township is the 12th local government entity in Muskingum County to be published on OhioCheckbook.gov. The township’s checkbook includes 4,289 transactions representing more than $1.7 million in spending from fiscal years 2021 to 2023.

“Choosing the Ohio Checkbook was an obvious decision for our community,” said Township President and Trustee Rusty Butler. “It aligns with the values of Harrison Township, including transparency, ensuring our residents know where their tax money is going. The Ohio Checkbook provides easy access to this information, as well as insights into what's happening around the community. On behalf of Harrison Township, we're excited about what's to come.”

OhioCheckbook.gov was launched in June 2020. The 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 government levels.

By streamlining website administration, eliminating duplication, and reducing overall operating costs, OhioCheckbook.gov will keep government transparency at taxpayers’ fingertips for years to come.
