The Greene County Commission will be holding a meeting Friday afternoon to receive a presentation revealing the details of the county’s independent financial audit.
The summary of the report has been released noting that Greene County has received an “unmodified” or “clean” opinion, meaning there were no instances of regulatory noncompliance found by the auditors.
“We believe in transparency at Greene County. The financial audit allows us to open our books to an independent, outside source for review,” said Greene County Auditor Cindy Stein. “We are pleased to have the report confirm our commitment to sound financial practices.”
The presentation will be given by KPM CPAs and Advisors beginning at 1 p.m. in Room 212 at the Greene County Historic Courthouse.
“Every day I witness the commitment County employees have to stretching taxpayer dollars, and this external financial audit verifies that their work meets or exceed the required standards.” said Presiding Commissioner Bob Dixon. “Historically Greene County has had a stellar record in this area.”
This audit has no impact on the audit of the county that is currently being conducted by Democratic State Auditor Nicole Galloway. Galloway’s audit of the county began after the conclusion of the audit by KPM.
This independent audit allows the county to apply for federal grant programs and also impacts the county’s rating with Moody’s Investor Services.
