As the first direct payment to local governments from the Distributor Opiate Settlement has been distributed, CCAO is reminding members of the approved uses for settlement dollars.
As a reminder, the Auditor of State's bulletin regarding the settlement states:
AOS recommends that each participating subdivision accepting OneOhio Funds clearly document their rationale for each expenditure. This documentation is best provided by legislation adopted by the entity’s legislative body explaining how the expenditure meets the approved purposes definition of the OneOhio MOU. To aid in our future audit work, we also ask that each expenditure be carefully tracked and adequate documentation of the expenditure be maintained.
