State Auditor Nicole Galloway has begun an audit of the city of Fairview, located in Newton County in southwest Missouri. Residents of the city requested the audit through the petition process.
“My audits examine how public resources are used, detail any concerns about how government operates, and make recommendations on how taxpayers can be better served,” Auditor Galloway said. “As this audit gets underway, I encourage residents with information that could be helpful to this review to reach out to my office through the Whistleblower Hotline.”
Under Missouri law, the State Auditor`s office may be called on to audit a political subdivision of the state if enough qualified voters of that entity request the audit. The petition audit from Fairview residents required 67 signatures.
Individuals who would like to provide information for consideration in this or any audit may contact the State Auditor’s Whistleblower Hotline at [email protected] or by calling 800-347-8597. Concerns may also be submitted anonymously online at this link.
