The Dubach Town Council got good news Tuesday night about its 2014 town audit.
Certified public accountant Don McGehee told the council the town is fiscally sound. About a report on the town’s financial statements through June 30, 2014, McGehee said the town is in a good place.
“The town is healthy financially from a cash flow stand point,” McGehee said. “When we look at the general operations of the town, they are not funding themselves entirely, but (they) are not way behind.”
