County books now in balance
Reconciliation of financial ledger books between the Jennings County treasurer's and auditor's offices is virtually complete. So reported James Jump of the Reedy Financial Group at Tuesday's meeting of the Jennings County Council.

"It has been a good 3.5-week process," Jump said, complimenting the efforts of personnel in both the treasurer's and auditor's offices in working with him to balance the books. "Give credit where credit is due. Sherri (Williams, chief deputy treasurer) worked independently several days ... and was the key in making this a better process and getting the task accomplished in a short amount of time. Susie (Barlow, deputy auditor) made herself available and worked not only on the actual reconciliation but on gaining a better understanding of her role and the connection between the auditor and treasurer."

Reedy is the county's financial advisory firm. At the council's April meeting, Treasurer Sandy Vance and Auditor Kay Vance requested that Reedy be allowed to work in their offices in order to complete the reconciliation. The Council approved that request by a 5-2 vote.

"Thank you to all for doing exactly what you said you'd do," Councilor Josh Yeager (R-District 3) said to the treasurer's and auditor's staff and Jump.

"This is what we've been wanting for a long time," added Howard Malcomb (R-at large), council president. "This has been a mess too long."
