Monday, September 17, 2007

Dayton -

Auditor of State Mary Taylor announced appointments to the Auditor of State’s Western Ohio Regional Advisory Board.  This is one of eight boards that Taylor is establishing throughout the state. 

“It is essential that we stay in touch with the people we serve,” Taylor said. “This gives us the opportunity to meet in person periodically with those in the best position to tell us how we can better assist them.”
The regional advisory board meetings provide local officials a forum to discuss major issues facing their communities that involve interaction with the Auditor of State’s Office. The boards are part of Taylor’s continued commitment to better serve local governments. 

Each board has representatives from every type of local government - county and city officials, township officials, school treasurers and local independent public accountants. The meetings will also provide local government entities with up-to-date government accounting regulations.
