County commissioners receive favorable audit

At their Nov. 12 meeting, the Randolph County commissioners were able to hear a favorable report on their annual audit, as well as updates and concerns about the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

While not present in person at the meeting, auditor James Schmersahl called in to give the Randolph County commissioners a report on the fiscal year 2020 audit. He highlighted that there had been “dramatic improvement over the past few years” for the county.

In addition, Schmersahl stated that the significant improvements that the commissioners have implemented over the past few years have stabilized the county’s finances, and led them from having negative or break even budgets to a positive one.
