(KMOV) -- Wouldn't it be nice to know how your county is spending its money?
Madison County, Ill., has now posted its checkbook online, from December 2009 until August 25, 2010.
A quick glance through the register shows more than $62,978.50 spent during that time on donuts to the jail. The Circuit Court appears to have an Imo's Pizza habit and Nuby's Steakhouse gets frequent visits from the Family Violence Coordinating Council.
