State gives county good financial review

EVERETT — Snohomish County government’s financial report card for last year is one that’s worthy of hanging on the refrigerator.

State Auditor Troy Kelley’s staff found no issues after reviewing the county’s financial statements and its oversight of federal grants during 2013.

“For a county of this size, that is significant,” said Lenda Crawford, the county executive director who oversees financial, budget and accounting functions. “It’s a great report.”

The county received a copy of the clean audit on Monday, Crawford said.

In technical language, the report notes no “findings,” significant deficiencies or material weaknesses.
