The City of Forsyth receives a follow-up, which indicates improvement, from the state auditor following their “poor” audit report from March. 

In March, Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway gave the city a rating of “poor” and gave the city recommendations on how to make improvements.

According to a Dec. 6 press release from the Office of the Missouri State Auditor, Galloway said city officials in Forsyth have implemented or are in the process of implementing the 12 recommendations of the March state audit, which gave the lowest possible rating. 

According to Branson Tri-Lakes News archives, the city requested the audit after more than $3,400 went missing in 2019.

The audit found numerous concerns, including more than $1,400 missing from the city’s vault and another $2,000 in utility deposits that were received but never deposited by the former utility clerk, according to the release. In addition to the missing money, the audit also found that thousands in utility deposits were not deposited until long after service had been activated.

More information including a link to the complete Audit Report can be found on the Branson Tri-Lakes News Website.
