State Auditor Adam Edelen released a financial report concerning the Christian County Sheriff’s Office and found no instances of non-compliance.
The audit found that Sheriff Livy Leavell’s financial settlement fairly represents the taxes charged and credited between April 16th, 2010 through April 15th, 2011.
Edelen also found no material weaknesses involving internal control over financial reporting and its operation.
State law requires sheriff office’s across the Commonwealth to be audited each year: one concerning the audit of the sheriff’s tax account and other on the audit of the fee account used to operate the office.
The responsibilities of the sheriff includes collecting property taxes, providing law enforcement and performing services for the county fiscal court and courts of justice.
