“Thurston County Receives Fifth Straight Clean Audit”
- Editor’s note: Congratulations to Auditor Hall and her fine team, which includes former award-winning Yelm Finance Director Joe Wolfe!
“‘Clean audits are a credit to our sound policies and meticulous and talented staff,’ said Mary Hall, Thurston County Auditor. The county auditor’s office overseas financial services for all of county government.
“An audit team from the State Auditor’s office worked with the Thurston County Auditor’s Financial Services Division for the last two months to complete financial and accountability audits. Staff from the Board of County Commissioners’, Treasurer’s and Assessor’s offices and other county departments also helped with the audit.
“This year’s audit was also conducted while county offices were closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic. ‘Because we were closed, the entire audit was conducted remotely,’ Hall said. ‘County staff worked hard to be accessible and responsive. We also gave them credentials for read only access to our financial system.'”
