With information gathered from department supervisors and revenues estimated by our office, we assist the Mayor and the Council Finance Committee in the development of the annual budget document. This document, approved by Council, is the spending guide for the year and is monitored by the Mayor and Auditor’s Office personnel.

In regard to purchasing, the Auditor is responsible to certify that funds are available before any financial obligation is approved or processed. Along with routine expenditures, it is also within our purview to gather data that assures the City of cost effectiveness in regard to bids and volume purchases.

Finally, the City Auditor’s Office acts as the liaison between the City and the State of Ohio Auditor’s Office and works hand-in-hand with the Local Government Services (LGS) to facilitate an effective financial philosophy for the City of Wellston.
