City Finance Department Receives Auditor of State Award with Distinction

North Canton’s Finance Director Karen Alger

North Canton’s Finance Director Karen Alger accepts the Auditor of State Award with Distinction presented by John Coorey II, regional liaison for the Ohio Auditor of State at last Monday night’s Council Meeting. The “clean” 2014 year audit report means that the city’s financial audit did not contain findings for recovery, material citations, material weaknesses, significant deficiencies, Single Audit findings or any questioned costs. The award not only reflects positively on the entire Finance Department but also on Administration employees, Law Department, City Council and its Clerk as the audit includes close scrutiny of the City’s process and performance involving public meetings, personnel records, policies, public records, and enacting legislation.
