(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) --  Those wanting to know how Buchanan County government spends taxpayer money now have a way to do so.

State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick was in St. Joseph on Monday to help announce the launch of the Local Government Checkbook program

People will now be able to go online to look at spending data, detailing funds, departments, vendors, payment descriptions and monies available.

Those who developed the program say it is an effort to provide greater government transparency.

"You can check what date we paid and how much we paid for this or anything we purchased is right there at your fingertips and it's extremely easy," said Tara Horn, Buchanan County auditor. 

Buchanan County is one of the first 14 government entities to participate. 

To check out Buchanan County spending go online to treasurer.mo.gov/showmecheckbook.

Just a little bit more sunshine today across northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. The air quality is much better today with the haze starting to clear out of the area. Tonight will be cool and calm with lows in the mid 60s and light winds. There is a slight chance for isolated showers tonight and tomorrow afternoon, although most of the area should stay dry. Dry and sunny conditions continue into the weekend as temperatures start to warm up again. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and then start to climb into the 90s as we head into the weekend.
