COLUMBUS - Wood County and one of its cities were recognized yesterday by Ohio Auditor Mary Taylor for excellent financial accountability.
Wood County was given the "Making Your Tax Dollars Count" award for its fiscal year 2005 and '06 audits; Northwood received the same award for the city's fiscal year '06 audit. Fewer than 5 percent of Ohio government agencies are eligible for the award.
Criteria that must be met include completing and submitting a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. In addition, there must be no findings or issues present in the most recent audit report and no other financial concerns involving the entity.
