Check Registers

Graph Showing Revenues Expenditures per Capita Fiscal Years 2012 through 2016

All current online check registers must show date, payee, and the amount paid for all expenses paid by a local government. This includes all payments including accounts payable, payroll, automated clearing house (ACH), electronic fund transfers (EFT), bonds, leases, loans, wires, etc.

Local governments must take extreme care to ensure that no confidential or sensitive personal data is posted, specifically in regards to employee salaries, fringe benefits, and other deductions. Employee information should be consolidated and presented as cumulative totals to prevent release. Further, consolidation of data by fiscal year is also strongly recommended by the state.
