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.
