Auditor chides county for lack of clarity in reporting

Franklin County received its 2017 fiscal year report from Adrienne Deason of the accounting firm of Henry & Peters, PC., with a list of continued internal control concerns attached.

The report is for the Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2017 time period. “We did identify a deficiency in internal control over financial reporting, described in the accompanying Schedule of Findings, that we consider to be a material weakness,” said Ms. Deason.
