State Auditor Mike Harmon has released the audit of the 2018 financial statement of Johnson County Clerk Sallee “Conley” Holbrook. According to a statement from the auditor’s office, the clerk’s office has received a clean bill of health.
The auditor noted no instances of noncompliance in accounting procedures and noted no matters involving internal control over financial reporting and its operation that were considered to be material weaknesses.
The report continued, detailing the health insurance policies and retirement policies available to county clerk’s office employees.
“As part of obtaining reasonable assurance about whether the Johnson County Clerk’s financial statement is free of material misstatement, we performed tests of its compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts, and grant agreements, noncompliance with which could have a direct and material effect on the determination of financial statement amounts,” the report said. “However, providing an opinion on compliance with those provisions was not an objective of our audit and, accordingly, we do not express such an opinion. The results of our tests disclosed no instances of noncompliance or other matters that are required to be reported under government auditing standards.”
According to the report, at the conclusion of the 2018 fiscal year, the clerk’s office did not owe any additional funds to the Johnson County Fiscal Court.
The county clerk’s responsibilities include collecting certain taxes, issuing licenses, maintaining county records and providing other services.
