Palmer ISD check register going online
PALMER – Alan R. Oakley, superintendent of schools for the Palmer Independent School District, announced today the monthly check register for the district will be posted on the district Web site effective Monday, Nov. 3.
The first month posted will be the September 2008 register.
Oakley said, "The board and I continue to make the commitment to our taxpayers for complete financial accountability. "This is public money and the public has the right to know to whom and how much is being spent."
"Our district will write nearly 200 checks on any given month outside of payroll," said Oakley, "If our taxpayers want to know where and how the money is spent they can go online and see.
"I see our financial accountability as district-wide information," said Oakley, "the term ‘transparency’ is being used often when discussing financial issues and our check register continue to ensure that the public is informed."
