WOODSTOCK – Woodstock’s finances have received a clean audit.

The findings of Woodstock’s fiscal year 2019 audit conducted by Robinson, Farmer, Cox Associates were heard for the first time Monday at a Town Council Finance Committee meeting.

The firm gave Woodstock an unmodified audit opinion, the highest level of assurance available, said James Kelly, an auditor with Robinson, Farmer, Cox Associates.

Kelly told committee members that the findings could not get better.

“In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the respective financial position of the governmental activities, the business-type activities, and each major fund of the town of Woodstock, Virginia, as of June 30, 2019, and the respective changes in financial positions, and where applicable, cash flows, thereof for the year then ended in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America,” read the finding. 

Mayor Jeremy McCleary said he was pleased with the results of the audit.

“Receiving the highest opinion that the auditors can issue, again this year, reflects the high level of financial accountability that the residents of the Town of Woodstock have come to expect. The results of the audit are a testament to the hard work and professionalism of our finance director, Amy Dill, and our town manager, Angela Clem. We are lucky to have them,” McCleary said.
