units such as schools, cities, townships, etc. who depend on
county monies to operate, will not have to worry about getting
their draws this year. Anyway, they wont have to worry
on account of the local office.
Ripley County Auditor Bill Wagner was pleased to announce that
his office was the first in the state to have everything accounted
for and sent to the state. Actually, the local government entity
submitted their report on November 18 and it was approved by
7 a.m. the next day.
Wagner was quick to say it was a group effort on the part of
everyone who works in his office. Ive got a great
group, he told the Osgood Journal. He noted in particular
that Amber May has helped him tremendously with the effort.
Other employees in the office include: Danielle Peetz, Lisa
Vestal and Marilyn Hunt.
The local office has to get their information to the state with
the paperwork being accounted for and balanced. Then it goes
to the state for approval, then Wagner can cut checks. He said
the fall settlement usually isnt done until
January, so this is a great feat, one he hopes to continue.
Wagners office was commended from other auditors
offices across the state as well as from state officials.
