On October 30, Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel announced the launch of the Milford Exempted Village School District’s online checkbook on OhioCheckbook.com

“The transparency OhioCheckbook.com offers is an important tool in continuing to building trust with the Milford school community,” said Brian Rabe, Treasurer, Milford School District.  “Taxpayers have a right to know how their tax dollars are being spent.”

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.   

Milford School District is the fifth school district in Clermont County to post their spending on OhioCheckbook.com.  The district’s online checkbook includes over 129,000 individual transactions that represent more than $297 million in spending over the last three years.

“I believe the people of Clermont 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.”
