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 330 municipalities and 356 taxing districts were required to file by December 31 because their fiscal year ended on June 30. Of those entities, 532 filed financial reports timely and 3 filed financial reports for a portion of their fiscal year.
This report also includes information on 7 municipalities and 12 taxing districts that submitted late financial reports or other related documents during the month of December to the State Auditor's Office.
