Auditor Fitzpatrick issues monthly financial reports


Missouri State Auditor Scott Fitzpatrick recently issued monthly reports detailing the compliance of cities 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. The 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 328 municipalities were required to file by Dec. 31, 2023, because their fiscal year ended June 30. Of those, 214 filed timely financial reports. Of the 231 municipalities required to file a municipal court addendum, 117 filed on time, and of the 100 required to file a certification of compliance with municipal court procedures, 56 filed on time.

The city of Mtn. View is one that filed all three of its documents on time, submitting its financial report in August. Likewise, the city of Cabool filed all three of its documents on Dec. 20, and the city of Mtn. Grove did the same on Dec. 27.

Ava in Douglas County also filed its required documents before Dec. 31, as did Koshkonong in Oregon County, Bakersfield in Ozark County and Norwood in Wright County.

Alton in Oregon County and Summersville in Texas County did not file their financial reports or municipal court addendums before Dec. 31; neither is required to file a certification.

A total of 411 nonmunicipal political subdivisions were required to submit financial reports by Dec. 31 for fiscal years ending June 30.

The Mtn. View-Summersville Ambulance District in Howell County filed its report well before the deadline, Aug. 14.
