REYNOLDS CO., MO (KDKZ-TV)Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway released a regularly scheduled audit of the government of Reynolds County, located in southeast Missouri. The audit, which received an overall rating of good, found several repeat findings from previous audits.

“Audit recommendations serve to safeguard against the potential misuse or mismanagement of taxpayer funds, and we expect local governments to take them seriously,” Auditor Galloway said. “I urge Reynolds County officials to do what is best for taxpayers and make these improvements to their processes and procedures.”

The report made recommendations to improve procedures in the Sheriff’s office, including  ensuring appropriate oversight of financial transactions. As noted in previous audits, the Sheriff’s office does not issue receipts for bond money received and maintains a bank account outside of the county treasury.

Additional repeat findings in the report included needed improvements to controls and procedures over the property tax system and a failure to obtain competitive bids for legal and appraisal services.
