A Bold Step Toward Financial Transparency

Posted on: March 16, 2016

Finneytown Local Schools is opening its spending records to the public by joining OhioCheckbook.com, an online program that allows taxpayers to search the databases of state government, municipalities, school districts and other public entities. Finneytown is the fifth of Hamilton County's 22 districts to offer this service.

Finneytown's online checkbook includes 31,000 individual transactions that represent $51 million in total spending over the last two years. Registration with OhioCheckbook.com follows other district efforts to increase financial transparency, including convening Town Hall meetings on facilities and finance.
