LaBrae Joins OhioCheckBook.Gov

COLUMBUS - Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague today announced that the LaBrae Local School District (Trumbull County) has joined OhioCheckbook.gov.

“With OhioCheckbook.gov, taxpayers have the opportunity to access state and local government spending at the click of a button,” said Treasurer Sprague. “We’re proud to have LaBrae Local Schools as a new partner in transparency and help provide this direct look at where residents’ tax dollars are going.”

The LaBrae Local School District is the 18th public entity in Trumbull County to join OhioCheckbook.gov. The district’s online checkbook includes more than 34,000 individual transactions representing over $55.7 million in spending from July 2017 through December 2020.

“The LaBrae Local School District is very excited for the District to partner with Ohio Checkbook to improve fiscal transparency to our taxpayers and stakeholders,” said LaBrae Local Schools Treasurer Brad Panak.

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.
