Cabell County Commission agrees to join financial tracking program

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — The Cabell County Commission has agreed to participate in a State Auditor’s Office program tracking county finances.

The agency offers Project Mountaineer to city and county governments; the online tool allows the public to track spending.

“I have made it my mission to make West Virginia the most transparent state in the country. Our first step was to make state spending accessible to everyone, now, Project Mountaineer is allowing local governments to open their books to the public through an easy-to-use web portal,” state Auditor J.B. McCuskey said.

Seventeen counties have websites through Project Mountaineer. According to the State Auditor’s Office, 27 additional counties have voted to join the service.
