Five straight Auditor of State Awards

For the fifth year in a row, Clermont County Public Health has earned the Auditor of State Award. The award is given annually to local governments and school districts after completing a financial audit. To receive the award, agencies must have a clean audit report.

Some of the criteria to meet a clean audit report include:

“This award goes to our Fiscal Officer, Katrina Stapleton – she is a one-person finance department,” said Health Commissioner Julianne Nesbit. “But, we could not do it without the tremendous help we receive from the Clermont County Auditor’s Office.”

“Three of Clermont County Public Health’s core values are credibility, dependability, and responsibility,” said Stapleton. “Consistently receiving the Ohio Auditor of State Award demonstrates our staff’s dedication to those values.”

“The fact that we have received this award every year Ms. Stapleton has been our fiscal officer shows her commitment to excellence and attention to detail,” said Nesbit.

Clermont County Public Health has a staff of about 50 employees with an annual operating budget of about $3.75 million. In 2018 approximately 40 percent of their revenue came from local licenses and fees and about 30 percent came from state and federal grants.
