From Staff Reports
The Tennessee Comptroller’s Office just announced that Unicoi County has received a clean audit report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2016 – the first in the state during the office’s annual review of the state’s county governments.
“This significant achievement means the county’s audit report was completed without any findings,” a press release from the office said. “Very few counties can claim to have an audit report without a finding indicating weaknesses or deficiencies in government operations.”
Also according to the press release, the audit showed that the county has “a strong system that allows for accurate financial reporting and clear checks and balances that help protect taxpayer money.”
“A clean audit report is a strong indicator of good government,” said Comptroller Justin P. Wilson. “Unicoi County can now claim to have one of the strongest county governments in Tennessee. I’d like to congratulate county leaders and employees for this accomplishment.”
