The office of the Washington State Auditor (SAO) recently completed its financial and accountability audits of the City of Battle Ground. The city earned clean reports on both audits with no findings and no management letters. This marks the 19th consecutive year of clean audit reports for the City.
The independent audits covered the City’s 2018 fiscal year ending December 31, 2018. The accountability audit examines and reports on how the City manages, uses, and safeguards public resources. The financial audit examines and reports on whether the City’s financial statements are accurate and complete and comply with provisions of laws, regulations, contracts and grant agreements.
“The City of Battle Ground is committed to responsible stewardship of public resources,” said Mayor Mike Dalesandro, “the results of the independent audit confirm that commitment and reflect the work of our dedicated and professional staff.”
The SAO’s audit reports for the City of Battle Ground as well as the City’s 2018 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, are available on our Financial Reports page.
