HUBER HEGIHTS — The City of Huber Heights was awarded the Auditor of State Award with Distinction for excellence in financial reporting for the 2015 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. The award from Auditor of State Dave Yost is presented to local governments and school districts that meet certain criteria. The City received a clean audit report upon a review by the Auditor’s office staff.

“We are very pleased to be receiving this award,” said James Bell, Director of Finance for Huber Heights. “The City is dedicated to the responsible and transparent management of finances, and this award and clean audit report shows that we are living up to that dedication.”

Criteria for the award includes: the entity must file timely reports with the Auditor of State’s office in the form of a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report; the audit report does not contain any findings for recovery, material citations, material weaknesses, significant deficiencies, Single Audit findings or questioned costs; the management letter contains no comments related to items like ethics referrals, findings for recovery less than $100; and no other financial or other concerns exist that involve the entity.

The City received the award from the Auditor of State at the City Council Meeting on Monday, November 28, 2016. Only five percent of all local governments across the State of Ohio earn this award each year.

“The City of Huber Heights’ main priority is responsibly managing all taxpayer dollars,” Bell said. “I thank all city workers who are involved in keeping that a priority, as it is thanks to their hard work that we are qualified to win this award.”
