The City of Harrison Mayor Bill Neyer said the City was officially notified by the State of Ohio on March 4, 2021 that it was being identified as unauditable.


"The City was aware that there were communication issues during the audit and took steps to remedy the issue," Neyer said. "The primary cause of this issue was a breakdown of communication between the City and the third party auditors. This was caused and amplified by the fact that the audit was for the most part conducted in a remote/virtual manner. All previous audits have been conducted in person and on site. Prior to the public news release, Harrison had supplied the auditors with all documents requested. The City fully expects to be found in compliance within the 90 day window stated in the notice." 


The Finance Department oversees all of the City's financial operations, including the annual budget, appropriations and resources, accounts payable, debt, investments, payroll and income tax. The Finance Department is also responsible for human resources and risk management. 

The City's finances are audited annually by an outside agency to ensure the integrity in keeping of the public purse. The City has earned an Award of Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association.
