COLUMBUS — Want to know how much that state inspector makes? How about the regional lottery chief? A new fully searchable state employee salary database with updated 2011 figures is now live on the OhioTreasurer.gov website.
The database is the work of Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel, who said it was “part of my desire to make government more accessible and accountable to Ohioans.
“The goal of these transparency initiatives is to help Ohioans follow their tax dollars and see how their hard-earned money is being spent,” Mandel said.
The website has other online services for Ohioans, including portals for increased government transparency, investment in Ohio bonds, constituent assistance, expanded online learning and easier access to ePayments.
Ohioans may also view the new website in mobile format on their smartphones.
