Clean municipal report draws praise from state


The Ohio Auditor of State has given its Award with Distinction to Rossford for its clean municipal audit report.

“Good finance is important to everything government does. We can’t expect good decisions by the mayor, good management by the executives, or sound budgetary decisions by council unless the books are clean and accurate,” Auditor Dave Yost said in a statement.

To qualify, a municipality must submit a timely Comprehensive Financial Audit Report that has no findings for recovery, material citations, material weaknesses, significant deficiencies, or other irregularities.
