Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway recently issued monthly reports detailing the compliance of municipalities 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 12 municipalities and taxing districts were required to file by July 31 because their fiscal year ended on Jan. 31. Of those entities, nine filed financial reports timely.
This report also includes information on 62 municipalities and 196 taxing districts that submitted late financial reports or other related documents during the month of July to the State Auditor's Office.
