JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Audits are underway in two counties in the KMZU listening area.

State Auditor Nicole Galloway

Missouri Auditor Nicole Galloway announced Monday her office is conducting audits in Atchison and Clinton Counties in northwest Missouri.

A news release from Galloway’s office indicates that staffers are currently undertaking the audits on-site in both Clinton and Atchison Counties. Neither county has been audited since 2014.

“The public deserves a government that operates transparently and holds itself accountable on behalf of its citizens,” Auditor Galloway said in the release. “These audits will provide an independent review of local government and I encourage anyone who has information to contact my whistleblower hotline.”

Anyone with information pertinent to the audits in Atchison and Clinton Counties may provide Galloway’s office with tips by calling 800-347-8597 or by sending the State Auditor’s Office an e-mail.

Concerns may also be submitted anonymously on the Missouri State Auditor’s website.
