    The audit was conducted by the Belt, Harris and Pechacek firm. Auditors stated the college maintains sound fiscal policy.
    “We have issued a clean and unmodified opinion,” said auditor Mike Brotherton. “That’s the highest level of assurance that we as auditors can provide that financial statements are free of any material misstatements.”
    The college has 67.8 million in total assets. Revenues were at $46.7 million with expenditures at $45.7 million.
