State Auditor Releases Results Of Greene County Audit

State Auditor Nicole Galloway gives Greene County a “good” rating in a recent audit.  The audit was released today by Galloway’s office.  It was formally requested last year by the Greene County Commission and looked at the operations of county government agencies other than the county commission and the sheriff, according to a news release.  Audits of those two agencies continue.

The audit found that during 2018, the county made disbursements of more than $18,000 that were questionable or unnecessary.  That included more than $15,000 for employee appreciation and recognition and $3000 in gift cards for highway department employees for Christmas.  According to county officials, the county has “reassessed what is considered a prudent expenditure of public funds, and it also has discontinued the use of gift cards.”

The audit also found the offices of the prosecuting attorney and the treasurer needed to improve their accounting procedures, and the county clerk needed to better account for receipt slips issued for liquor licenses.
