A single audit of federal awards, which totaled $616,000 — mainly from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security — showed no findings.
“Over all it was a really good year, financially, for the county,” Williams said. “We have several things that we have spoken with the auditor’s office about, key areas to continue working on and some improvements to make.
“It was a good thing the agency fund liability came up, a good thing for everyone to learn from and move forward and handle a little bit differently moving forward.”
Riley thanked Williams and talked about how county processes have improved through the years through outside audits and proper internal auditing.
He attributed the growth in the unassigned fund balance to the county auditor’s office and the court.
Williams spoke to the importance of paying attention to internal controls.
“Just being open to changes in controls, strengthening controls, and having those procedures and policies in place and asking everyone to follow them consistently are key to keeping the county moving and growing improving,” she said.
