NOTICE TO RESIDENTS

Effective immediately, the recycling program for Lee County has been suspended due to very poor market conditions.  There is no market for plastic and the price of cardboard and used paper has dropped over 80% in the past few years.  We regret having to take this step but feel we can no longer incur the losses of operating the program.  Should the recycling market change significantly, we will reconsider the program at that time.  Please place all formerly recycled products into the dumpsters at a Solid Waste Convenience Center.

STATEMENT REGARDING REQUIRED LOCAL GOVERNMENT AUDIT
January 31, 2020

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, 2019.  The reason for the delay in completion is due to the late notification from the County’s previous accounting consulting firm that they would no longer be able to complete the year-end closing and adjusting entries for compilation of the financial statements for audit by the County’s contracted auditing firm.  After this notification, the County advertised for proposals for consulting accounting services and awarded a contract on June 27, 2019.  This late change in consulting firms, coupled with limited remaining scheduling dates for the County’s audit firm, has delayed completion of the preliminary adjustment 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 March 15, 2020.
