For the twelfth consecutive year, the City of Beavercreek has been honored with the "Ohio Auditor of State Award with Distinction" for its Annual Comprehensive Financial Report, covering the fiscal year ending in 2022.
On behalf of Ohio State Auditor, Keith Faber, Joseph Braden, who is the state auditor’s west regional liaison, presented the award to Beavercreek’s Financial Administrative Services Director, Bill Kucera, along with City Manager Pete Landrum and Mayor Bob Stone at the mayor’s First Thursday event on December 7, 2023.
The state auditor’s office conducts audits for nearly 6,000 entities each year, with only 3 percent being eligible for this prestigious award. To qualify, the city must have a clean report, devoid of significant deficiencies or findings, material citations or weaknesses, single audit findings (grant reporting), and questionable costs.
"Receiving the 'Ohio Auditor of State Award with Distinction' for the twelfth consecutive year underscores our city's unwavering dedication to transparent governance and responsible fiscal stewardship,” said Landrum. “I extend my gratitude to our exceptional team, led by Financial Administrative Services Director Bill Kucera, for their consistent efforts in upholding the highest standards in financial reporting."
This recognition underscores the city’s commitment to maintaining outstanding stewardship of residents' taxes and its ongoing dedication to reporting results in accordance with the highest government accounting standards, both now and in the future.
