Jobe's office gets good report card

Chris Jobe at Fiscal Court  meetingChris Jobe at Fiscal Court meetingFRANKFORT, Ky. – State Auditor Mike Harmon today released the audit of the 2015 financial statement of Lawrence County Clerk Chris Jobe.

State law requires the auditor to conduct annual audits of county clerks and sheriffs.

Auditing standards require the auditor’s letter to communicate whether the financial statement presents fairly the receipts, disbursements and excess fees of the Lawrence County Clerk in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The clerk’s financial statement did not follow this format. However, the clerk’s financial statement is fairly presented in conformity with the regulatory basis of accounting, which is an acceptable reporting methodology. This reporting methodology is followed for all 120 clerk audits in Kentucky.

The auditor noted no instances of noncompliance.

The auditor also noted no matters involving internal control over financial reporting and its operation that were considered to be material weaknesses.

The county clerk’s responsibilities include collecting certain taxes, issuing licenses, maintaining county records and providing other services. The clerk’s office is funded through statutory fees collected in conjunction with these duties. The audit report can be found on the auditor’s website.

The Lawrence Co. Fiscal Court met for its monthly meeting on Tuesday, February 21, 2017. The meeting was called to order after the pledge and the opening prayer.

Several items on the agenda were approved by unanimous vote.

*  Motion by John J Lemaster, second by Earl Boggs to approve the minutes of the January 24th meeting.

*  Motion by Rick Blackburn, second by John Lemaster to approve the !st reading of the Budget Amendment

*  Motion by John J. Lemaster, second by Rick Blackburn to approve the Treasurer's Request

*  Motion by Earl Boggs, second by Rick Blackburn to approve the bills for the month

*  Motion by Earl Boggs, second by John J.  Lemaster to approve the Treasurer's Report

*  Motion by Rick Blackburn, second by John J. Lemaster to approve the Ky Transportation Rural Secondary Program FY 2017-2018. There are 94,225 miles of State Highways in Lawrence Co that are classified as the Rural Secondary Sustem.  The allotment for the Lawrence Co. Road Secondary Program for the Fiscal Year 2017-2018 is $ 1,446,290.

*  Motion by Earl Boggs, second by John Lemaster to appoint Brenda Hardwick to the Lawrence Co. Tourism Board

*  Motion by John J. Lemaster , second by Morris Howard to approve Resolution to Apply for KCHS funds for fire depts.

*  Motion by John J. Lemaster, second by Rick Blackburn to approve truck lease with Worldwide Equipment so the County can haul its own gravel.

Two motions were tabled for a later discussion.

The bids on the Blaine Fire Dept. Surplus were rejected as they were too low.

The issue of returning funds to the East Park (FIVCO industrial park project in Greenup Co. that supposed to include Lawrence Co.) for revenue to keep the park open was tabled until the County Attorney and Court have questions they have answered.

"I didn't think it was addressed properly," Co. Atty. Mike Hogan said. "I don't see the benefit of the project. I would like to see a profit/loss statement for East Park for the last 5 years. I would like to look at the finances of the park. "

The meeting was then adjourned.

Those in attendance were John Osborne County Judge, Earl Boggs Magistrate, Rick Blackburn Magistrate, John J. Lemaster Magistrate, Morris Howard Magistrate, Mike Hogan County Attorney, Garret Roberts Sheriff and Chris Jobe County Clerk.
