Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway recently issued monthly reports detailing the compliance of local governments and other political subdivisions with financial reporting laws.
One report includes cities, towns and villages while the other lists political subdivisions such as water, fire protection and other taxing districts. These entities are required to file annual financial reports with the State Auditor's Office within six months of the end of their fiscal year.
A total of 1,883 local governments and taxing districts were required to file by June 30 because their fiscal year ended on Dec. 31. Of those entities, 1,351 filed financial reports timely.
This report also includes information on seven cities and three taxing districts that submitted late financial reports or other related documents during the month of June to the State Auditor's Office.
