Financial transparency means making information as accessible as possible to the public.  Our goal is to post information such as approved annual budgets, monthly Auditor’s report, monthly sales tax report, monthly vendor history and monthly check reports.  Financial transparency means timely, meaningful and reliable disclosures about our performance with taxpayers’ money.

The below department key provides you on how to break down expenses / revenues for each department.  In the approved annual budget and monthly check report you will see a break down between department account numbers on monthly expenses.

For any further detailed information, you may contact the County Clerk’s Office at 573-756-5411 option 3.  To view the reports below, scroll over the category and click on the report link.
