Auditor: Jefferson Township is unauditable


JEFFERSON TWP., Ohio (WDTN) – The Ohio State Auditor’s Office says the financial records in Jefferson Township are “unauditable”.

Auditor Dave Yost says he made the ruling while conducting a regular financial check of the township from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2013.

“An audit requires a clear picture of the township’s finances,” Auditor Yost said. “When the dollars on the books don’t match the bank statements, there’s a problem.”

Yost sent a list of required records needed to complete the audit to the township. It must provide the records within 90 days.

If not, the state could file a lawsuit forcing the township to comply.

An entity is removed from the “unauditable” list once the audit is completed and released to the public. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
