COLUMBUS - Coshocton County Auditor Chris Sycks, along with Deputy Auditor Nicole Medley, met with Sen- ator Jay Hottinger to discuss the need to strengthen local governments during the County Auditors’ Association of Ohio (CAAO) Legislative Day at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus on Wednesday, April 3. A member of the CAAO Legislative Committee, Sycks is in Columbus monthly to keep up on current and future legislation, and actively participates in the bills that directly aff ect Coshocton County and its government. Ohio’s state legislators are in the process of discussing the biennial state budget. Th e fi nalized budget will have a considerable impact on local governments throughout Ohio. Th e CAAO Legislative Day allows county auditors to meet with legislative and administrative policymak- ers to ensure that the interests of local governments are being fairly represented. “It was an honor to meet with Senator Hottinger at the Statehouse to talk about the need to support Ohio’s counties and other local governments”, said Sycks. “I appreciate the senator taking time out from his busy schedule to meet with local offi cials. Strong support from the state will help our county, schools and munici- palities continue to provide high-quality services to our residents.” Sycks exemplifi es accountability, fairness and accu- racy for taxpayers in Coshocton County. She creates transparency by preparing comprehensive county fi nancial reports, establishes property values that refl ect fair market values and ensures tax dollars are spent to benefi t citizens. Her offi ce’s records are available to inspect both in her offi ce and online at https://www. coshoctoncounty.net/auditor/ “It was an honor to meet with Senator Hott inger at the Statehouse to talk about the need to support Ohio’s counties and other local governments” - Chris Sycks Th e County Auditors’ Association of Ohio was found- ed in 1867 for the express purpose of promoting and protecting the interests of taxpayers in the State of Ohio and improving the administration of county govern- ment.
