STATEMENT REGARDING REQUIRED LOCAL GOVERNMENT AUDIT
February 26, 2021

The County of Lee, Virginia’s annual audit, as required by Section 15.2-2511 of the Code of Virginia has not yet been completed for the Fiscal Year ended June 30, 2020.  The reason for the delay in completion is due primarily to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Several staff members and partners of the county’s accounting consulting firm have tested positive for the virus or have been quarantined due to possible exposure during the past seven months.  This firm completes year-end closing and adjusting entries for compilation of the financial statements for audit by the County’s contracted auditing firm.  The staff absences have delayed the consultants’ ability to complete the preliminary adjustments and compilation of the financial statements for audit.  The County’s audit firm has indicated they would expect to have the final audit report completed and submitted to the Auditor of Public Accounts by May 15, 2021.
