Carthage gets clean audit

By Susan Redden

CARTHAGE, Mo. — Carthage city financial records got a clean bill of health Tuesday when results of an independent audit were presented to the city council.

Andy Marmoget of Davis, Lynn & Moots outlined audit results to the council after making a more in-depth presentation earlier to the council’s finance and personnel committee.

The city has received a clean audit for at least the last seven years, said Lynn Campbell, city clerk.

Also during the council meeting, Cambell announced that Bev Baker, a deputy clerk in her office, had been hired as the new Nevada city clerk. Baker, who has been the accounts receivable clerk for Carthage for three years, will start her new job March 1.
