Council’s value for money
1:20pm Friday 28th September 2012 in News
INDEPENDENT auditors have given Herefordshire Council a clean bill of health for its 2011/12 financial accounts and its ability to provide value for money.
On Friday, the council’s audit committee received the accounts, along with the Audit Commission’s assessment of its financial and governance arrangements.
Coun Philip Price, cabinet member for corporate services, said: “It’s good news for the people of Herefordshire that once again we have delivered unqualified accounts and have in place effective arrangements.
“The Audit Commission has also recognised the change delivered by the council as we tackled government funding reduction and successfully set up Hoople, our joint venture company that employs former council staff.”
