Pursuant to Chapter 6, Article 9 of West Virginia Code, the financial statements of all local units of government must be audited each year by either the West Virginia State Auditor or a private accounting firm approved by the state auditor. For more information about the state auditor’s rules and procedures regarding the audit process, please click here.
The time period for each audit is what is known as a “fiscal year.” All governments in West Virginia use a fiscal year that runs from July 1 to June 30; the fiscal year is named for the year in which it ends. For example, Fiscal Year 2018 ran from July 1, 2017 until June 30, 2018. Audits of a given fiscal year are typically completed by spring of the following year, i.e., 2019 for Fiscal Year 2018.
If you would like to examine audits of the City of Elkins from Fiscal Year 2005 or later, PDF files may be accessed through the state auditor’s website by clicking here. On that page, enter “Elkins” in the “Public Document Search Field” and select click the magnifying glass icon. Please feel free to call the city clerk for help accessing these reports.
These and some earlier audits are also available for review in paper form in the office of the city clerk.
