Mansfield Finance Director Receives Auditor of State Award
For the 2nd year in a row, the State of Ohio has awarded the City of Mansfield and the Finance Director Linn Steward with the “Auditor of State Award with Distinction.” This award is presented to local governments and school districts receiving a “clean” audit report during their most recent financial audit. Lindsay Kuhn, Regional Liaison for Auditor Yost, presented the award for fiscal year 2017 at the Finance Committee meeting October 16th in Council Chambers. According to her, less than 5% of the more than 6000 government agencies they audit receive this award.
“As Finance Director, I want to personally thank the Council Members, Mayor Theaker and all the employees for all of your hard work and dedication during the past few years. This award confirms your commitment to the fiscal health of our City. With your support, we have been able to establish sound financial policies, responsible annual budgets and comprehensive financial forecasts.”
