Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway has released the follow-up report to the Village of Country Club audit. The original audit was issued in November 2014 and earned an overall performance rating of "poor." The follow-up report, which does not include an overall rating, highlights the steps Country Club has taken to implement audit recommendations, and notes areas where concerns remain.
"The Village of Country Club has implemented a number of recommendations to address issues ranging from road improvements to balanced bank accounts," Galloway said. "I believe these changes will improve government operations and create better, more efficient government for the citizens of Country Club."
For follow-up reporting purposes, audit findings are prioritized and then selected recommendations are evaluated and ranked as implemented, in progress, partially implemented or not implemented.
In the Country Club follow-up report, 15 recommendations were selected for evaluation. Of those 15, 12 recommendations have been successfully implemented, including separate accounting of money designated for roads, developing annual road maintenance plans and ensuring board meetings are held in accordance with Missouri's Sunshine Law.
The follow-up review was conducted in May 2015. The status updates in the follow-up report are deemed accurate through that time. The complete follow-up report is available here.
