County receives "Excellent Audit"

In the midst of financial problems around the world, the Bacon County Board of Commissioners got one of the strongest financial audits it has received in years last week.
“It’s a good opinion,” said Robert Goodman, CPA, who presented the county the audit. “You’re in pretty good shape.”
He reported the county saw a $510,000 swing in the net fund balance from last year.
Larry Taylor, BYRT CPA and county’s financial advisor, commented on the audit after Goodman completed his presentation. “If you remember, earlier I told you we were looking pretty good and this audit shows not only a strong audit but an excellent report.”

City/County looking at adding additions to the recreation department

Mayor Peggy Murphy and the City of Alma are brokering a deal with the Bacon County Government to install a Splash Pad at the Alma-Bacon County Recreation Department.
Cost of the project or a time line for the construction was not given, but it will be a hit to children across the community.
The reason the city will have to work with the county is because the county is the managing government of the sports facility.
