Auditor Biviano and his staff receive award...

Trumbull County Auditor Adrian Biviano and his staff have been recognized by the Ohio Auditor Mary Taylor's office for its excellence in financial accountability.

Auditor Biviano had a clean financial audit in 2007 which has made him the recipient of the prestigious Making Your Tax Dollars Count Award personally handed to him by Ohio Auditor Mary Taylor. This is the third consecutive year the office has received this honor. Auditor Biviano attributes much of this recognition to the excellent job his staff does in regard to accountability for the taxpayers.

Eligibility for this award is obtained when the following criteria are met :  a community must complete a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, which gives a complete accounting of the community's financial picture; not have any findings or issues with its most recent audit report; and be free of any other financial concerns. Less than 5 percent of all Ohio governments are eligible for the award.

"I am proud to recognize Trumbull County for their commitment to fiscal accountability ," Taylor said. "I commend them for receiving this honor and encourage them to continue making financial accountability a high priority."

Trumbull County is the only county to receive this award within the Youngstown region, which includes Trumbull, Mahoning, Ashtabula, Columbiana, Jefferson, Portage, Harrison and Carroll counties.
