Schuyler County Receives Rating of Good in Audit from Auditor Galloway

State Auditor Nicole Galloway released her regularly scheduled audit of Schuyler County this week. The county received an overall rating of “good” in the audit, which matches the “good” rating received by the county in a 2015 audit. Galloway said her audit recommended several areas for improvement that county government officials have shown a willingness to implement to better ensure efficiency and accountability for its taxpayers. Those recommendations include that the county develop an electronic communications records retention policy to comply with state law and to improve electronic data security measures in two county offices. Auditors also recommended that the Sheriff develop a better inventory control system for seized property, which was an area of concern auditors identified in the 2015 audit.
