Board of Commissioners Meeting Recap – February 5, 2024

Posted February 7, 2024


The Granville County Board of Commissioners held a regular meeting on Monday, February 5 at the Granville County Convention and Expo Center. The meeting featured the presentation of the annual financial audit report from Granville County’s auditing firm, Thompson, Price, Scott, Adams, and Co., P.A. An annual audit is required by the North Carolina Local Government Commission (LGC) to ensure that local governments are conducting business in compliance with state regulations and utilizing best financial practices. The fiscal year 2022-2023 audit resulted in an “unmodified” opinion by the auditors, meaning that the information provided by Granville County staff accurately reflects the current financial status of the county.
