Johnson County Gets Clean Audit Report

Johnson County received a clean audit report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2012 from Porter, Muirhead, Corina and Howard, CPAs at their last county commissioner's meeting.

Molly Levine from PMCH gave the clean report to the commissioners, saying that everything in the audit “looks good,” and grading the report as “overall, a very good audit report.”

She explained further.

Total revenue for the county was $20 million, with $22 million in expenditures. Capital outlay accounted for $14 million of those expenditures, wrapped up in the criminal justice and judicial centers.

Levine said there were a few items that weren't significant enough to include in the report, but her firm felt would be good to at least bring to the commissioner's attention.

First, was that it is the commissioner's responsibility to always be aware of the possibility of fraud. Second, for the department heads to begin using a spreadsheet to track each department's usage of funds from Federal grants and loans to make it easier to track during the annual audit. Third, to take all outstanding checks from all county accounts and turn those over to the state's unclaimed property account to clean the county's accounts up.
