Miller County finances are put under the microscope in the recently released report published by State Auditor Nicole Galloway’s office. The report covers several areas ranging from fraud risk management and control, to accounting and purchasing, to financial reporting. County Clerk Clinton Jenkins says, being a third-class county without an auditor hired on the payroll, the financial statement audit is required by law every two years.
A separate audit, covering other operations of the county government, is performed by the state every four years. Jenkins goes on to say, by the time the financial audit is released, most concerns have already been addressed and corrected by the courthouse.
