Lisa Beatty, county fiscal administrator; Michael Lamb from Wessel & Company; county auditors; and Cory Johnson and Daniel Sefick from Zelenkofske Axelrode LLC met with commissioners Stuart Ulsh, Rodney Mc- Cray, and Pete Lynch at their weekly meeting last Tuesday regarding the annual audit exit conference.

Johnson and Sefick stated that the audit was still in draft form but commended the board and staff on their good decision making and budget management. They also noted that there were no findings in their report. While discussing the July flash report for the county, Lamb said that 90 percent of county taxes have been collected, and that the county spent roughly $200,000 less than last year.

Karen McFadden, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) coordinator, met with the county commissioners to approve and sign the exempt status determination form for the environmental review of the Fulton County Fairgrounds that is funded within the FFY 2015 CDBG contract.

McFadden also proposed that leftover funds from the Needmore water project, roughly $3,000, be reallocated in the FFY 2016 CDBG contract to the Fulton County Fairgrounds for accessibility upgrades. The commissioners agreed to the proposed revisions.

A McConnell Park lease agreement between the Fulton County Family Partnership (FCFP) and the Fulton County commissioners was also approved so that FCFP can host a free movie night in the park on Sept. 15 at 6 p.m. F&M Trust will be supplying refreshments.
