Auditor of State Mary Taylor today presented city of Mount Vernon with the “Making Your Tax Dollars Count” award for their fiscal year 2008 audit. Fewer than five percent of all Ohio government agencies are eligible for this award.

“I commend the city of Mount Vernon for its commitment to fiscal accountability,” said Taylor. “Congratulations on your hard work and for being trustworthy stewards of taxpayer dollars.”

  • The entity must complete and submit a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
  • There must be no findings or issues present in the audit report.
