Sue Ann Mitchell, Kosciusko County Treasurer, joined state auditor Suzanne Crouch for formation of a new council. The new advisory council is comprised of county auditors and treasurers from around the state.
The council met today in Indianapolis for the first time.
“My office interacts directly with all 92 counties in Indiana on a regular basis, making it crucial that our lines of communication are open and receptive,” Crouch said. “Forming this council is one way I can ensure that we are all on the same page and are doing everything we can to best serve our constituencies.”
The council’s goal is to identify challenges at the county and state levels and collaborate on initiatives to combat these issues.
“I so appreciate those who took the time to meet with us today and give some insight on how we can better work together,” said Crouch. “Our next meeting in January will give us an opportunity to follow through on some of the points that were made today and pinpoint more specifically what our mission will be for this new group.”
Representatives from the State Board of Accounts, Hoosier S.T.A.R.T., the Department of Local Government Finance and the Indiana Association of Cities gave presentations, providing the auditors and treasurers an opportunity to ask questions and share issues relevant to their counties.
