State Auditor David Yost will present the City of Toledo with the “Award of Distinction for Excellence in Financial Reporting” for its 2015 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report on Thursday, October 13, 2016 at 1 pm in the Huntington Room of the Main Branch of the Library.  “The State of Ohio Auditor’s Award of Distinction is further evidence of the City’s commitment to sound fiscal management,” said Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson. “The Award with Distinction is given to less than five percent of all the public entities that submit CAFRs to the Auditor of State’s office, so we understand the challenge to obtain this award,” said Finance Director, George Sarantou.


The State Auditor’s Office will also provide Fraud Prevention training to City employees in two sessions in the Toledo-Lucas County Library on Thursday.
