Post Date:01/18/2018 8:50 AM

Independent accounting firm, Greene Finney, LLP issued Dorchester County an unmodified opinion after auditing the County’s FY2017 financial statements.

An unmodified opinion indicates the County’s financial statements are in accordance with all applicable framework of a government organization.

Dorchester County Council Chairman, Jay Byars said “Dorchester County is in great financial shape with a focus on long term sustainability through strengthened management practices.” Byars added "Dorchester County continues to show superb fiscal accountability of taxpayer's hard-earned money. I appreciate the remarkable job that our staff does to ensure our county meets the needs of our citizens in the most fiscally responsible manner."

In addition to receiving the unmodified opinion, the County has issued a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the first time. The CAFR is available for review on this site and has been submitted to the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for consideration in the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting Program.
