“Bottom line, you still have money to use and work with,” claimed the auditor after explaining his report to the County Commissioners during the April 22nd meeting.

Keith Neffendorff, Auditor, Neffendorff, Knopp, Horry, and Dobbs, P.C., Fredericksburg, took command of the Blanco County Commissioner’s Court meeting as he read from and explained his “Independent Auditor’s Report”. Noting that he suffered from oak allergies, his voice weakened the longer he delved into the mass of numbers and figures in his lengthy report but the Court listened attentively.

“Ya’ll have turned this thing around in the last few years,” said Neffendorff, “and we appreciate the level of accounting the Commissioner’s Court has provided.”

The report includes summaries of long term debt, land purchases, a breakdown of balances in accordance with the Investment Act, an explanation of incomes and fees collected by various entities, the retirement system, assets and appreciation schedules, liabilities, and investments.

Neffendorff said that the county is in compliance with requirements and that “all risks are covered” adding that all the required changes for small government have now been incorporated into the statistics.

Approximately ten years worth of auditing, including the most current report, is available to the public at the County Courthouse during regular business hours. To review the reports, see Karen Newman, County Clerk, or Camille Swift, County Treasurer.

In other business, the Commissioners voted to replat Block 10, Tracts A, B, and C in the Lake of the Hills subdivision, to amend the Precinct 1 Road and Bridge budget to include “Crabapple Crossing Repair”, to approve outstanding bills to be paid, and approve prior meeting minutes.
