Columbiana Drug Task Force faces deadline to revise records

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio - As a result of what are described as "inadequate financial records", Auditor of State Dave Yost placed the Columbiana County Drug Task Force on the "unauditable" list.

According to a statement from the Auditor's office, the condition of the task force's financial records were not adequate to complete a regular financial audit for the period January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2012

In a letter to the task force, the Auditor of State's office provided a list of records required to complete the audit.

Within 90 days of the date of the letter, the task force must revise its financial records and provide the necessary data.

Failure to bring records to an auditable condition may result in legal action, including the possibility of the attorney general issuing a subpoena to the task force officials to explain the condition of records. The attorney general may also file suit to compel the officials to prepare and/or produce the required information.

"Poor records lead to poor service for taxpayers," Auditor Yost said. "Auditable records must be provided to complete the audit and ensure accountability."

An entity is removed from the "unauditable" list once the audit is completed and released to the public.
