Annual Reports

being accountable

a note from the auditor

To the Citizens of Geauga County

The sole purpose of the report is to make the government of Geauga County more accountable to you, the citizens of the County. What services does the County provide? How has Geauga County used your tax dollars? The publication of this report increases our accountability to the public by presenting an overview of the County’s economy, its finances, its resources, the use of taxpayer dollars.

The CAFR was prepared in conformance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and was audited by the Auditor of State of Ohio’s office, receiving an unqualified opinion. The Citizens Financial Report, however, is unaudited and is presented on a non-GAAP basis. The major differences between GAAP and non-GAAP reporting deals with not including component units and in the presentation of segregated funds, as well as full disclosure of all material financial and non-financial events in the notes to the financial statements. Individuals who desire to review GAAP basis, full disclosure financial statements should refer to the County’s CAFR, which is available from the County Auditor’s Office.

The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has given an Award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting to Geauga County for its Citizens Financial Report. The Award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting is a prestigious national award, recognizing conformance with the highest standards for preparation of state and local government popular reports. In order to receive an Award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting, a government unit must publish a Popular Annual Financial Report whose contents conform to program standards of creativity, presentation, understandability and reader appeal. An Award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting is valid for a period of one year only. We believe our current report continues to conform to the Popular Annual Financial Reporting requirements, and we are submitting it the GFOA.

As we all have an interest in the operation of our County Government, I welcome any comments or suggestions concerning this report or any other aspects of Geauga County Government.

Sincerely,

Charles E. Walder

Geauga County Auditor
