No findings in 2016 Elizabethton audit
ELIZABETHTON (Dec 22, 2016) — There were no findings or other problems reported in the latest financial audit for the city of Elizabethton.
The audit was conducted by the independent accounting firm of Blackburn, Childers and Steagall. It was completed on Dec. 14 and released to city councilmen this week.
“Financially, the city is in good shape,” said Deborah Kessler, finance director for the city. She said the audit not only had no findings, but also did not identify any material weaknesses.
Kessler said the audit not only covered the city’s finances, but also those of the Elizabethton Electric Department, Elizabethton City School System, Elizabethton Golf Course, and Elizabethton Municipal Airport. Kessler was pleased that once again the electric department had no findings, after a finding on work orders was reported two years ago.
