Linda Fraley, Clermont County Auditor, was recently presented the Auditor's Award by Betty Montgomery, Auditor of State, for the county's 2004 Annual Financial Report. This award is given to counties who receive the Award of Achievement for Excellence in financial reporting from the National Government Finance Officers Association, as well as a good opinion audit from the State Auditor's Office.
"I applaud Clermont County's staff for presenting a clear and thorough report of the county's finances," Montgomery said. "Fewer than five percent of all the agencies we audit are eligible for today's award. That says a great deal about the county's commitment to safeguarding taxpayer dollars."
Linda has received this award for the fourth consecutive time and has also received a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for each year since in office. Congratulations to Linda and her staff for achieving this honor.
