Every financial year is audited by the State of Ohio Auditor of States office. Financial reporting is made to the state who then spends weeks at the City pulling records, verifying accounts, evaluating purchase orders, their receipts and checks. The State also makes exhaustive evaluations of the City's bank accounts and appropriations (budget). These yearly intensive audits focus on many areas but are mainly concerned with the Auditor, Treasurer, and Councils budgetary actions. Any citizen or employee may attend the States public audit meetings. The 2017 audit has begun, we are waiting for the State Audit team to arrive.
The Norwood Auditors office is the proud recipient of the Government Financial Officers Association (GFOA) award for Excellence in Financial Reporting for each year we file a Comprehensive Annual financial Report (CAFR).
