The City of Jackson Gets Clean Audit

The City of Jackson received an unmodified or clean opinion on its yearly financial statements during the June 7 meeting of the Mayor and Board of Aldermen. Officials said that the financial statements were fairly stated and they found no instances of noncompliance with federal rules and regulations. A single deficiency was found regards to utilization of federal funds. Whenever the city spends  over  $750,000 of federal money — as it did this past year because of COVID-19 relief funds—there has to be formal written policies and procedures on the use of that money. The City lacked those. However, samples of such procedures have been given to City administrators, and the problem is being fixed.
