Jefferson City, MO –Missouri State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick today announced that Worth County has joined the Local Government Checkbook, making its spending data available to Missourians. The Checkbook is part of his ongoing commitment to ensuring a more efficient and transparent government at both the state and local levels.

 

                Spending data from 26 local governments, Buchanan County, Butler County, Callaway County, Cape Girardeau County, Carter County, Cass County, Clay County, Cole County, Cooper County, Dallas County, Franklin County, Greene County, Hickory County, Jasper County, Lawrence County, Lincoln County, Marion County, Miller County, Moniteau County, Newton County, St. Charles County, the City of St. Louis, Vernon County, Webster County, and Worth can be searched, with additional counties in progress. The Office will continue adding county expenditure data as it becomes available.

 

Visitors to the Checkbook can examine expenditure data detailing funds, departments, vendors, payment descriptions, and totals for the available government entities.

 

“As Treasurer, I am guided by the three pillars of good government: truth, trust, and transparency. This is why I am always working to increase transparency within my office and at all levels of government,” Treasurer Fitzpatrick said. “As we approach 30 partner counties in the Local Government Checkbook, I am grateful to county leaders who are also working to find ways to increase transparency and build trust for their constituents. I hope more county leaders will join in and participate in the local government checkbook.”

 

In 2020, Treasurer Fitzpatrick announced the expansion of the Show-Me Checkbook to include local governments. He also facilitated aggregating state expenditures related to federal stimulus funding in one portal on the Treasurer’s Office website for Missourians to search. This portal has been expanded to include information related to the American Rescue Plan.

 

The Show-Me Checkbook is one of the most comprehensive state financial data portals in the country. The Local Government section of the Show-Me Checkbook can be found here.
