City of Joplin state audit to be released August 18

(From Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway)

Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway will release the results of the City of Joplin audit on Aug. 18 at 5:30 p.m. at Missouri Southern State University.

"The people of Joplin have shown incredible courage and resilience as they faced a long and difficult recovery from the devastating effects of the 2011 tornado and its aftermath," Galloway said. "Government has a responsibility to operate with transparency and accountability, and I look forward to delivering this audit report to the citizens of Joplin."

The residents of Joplin initiated the audit though a standard petition process. Under Missouri law, the State Auditor`s Office may be called upon to audit a public entity, such as a city or a school district, through a petition process that includes a number of valid signatures based on a percentage of the number of voters. In the City of Joplin, 1,776 valid signatures were required to begin the audit.

Galloway will deliver the audit report at a public meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 18 at 5:30 p.m. at Missouri Southern State University's Corley Auditorium in Webster Hall, 3950 Newman Rd. in Joplin.
