To:                                          The Honorable Lake County Board of Supervisors


From:                                          Cathy Saderlund, Auditor-Controller                     


Subject:                     Audit Committee Bylaw Changes


Executive Summary:


On February 9, 1999 your Board established the Lake County Audit Committee.  During the June 22, 2022 meeting suggested changes to the committee bylaws were presented to the members. 


The suggested changes include removal of the names of those holding member positions, formatting updates, adding Section 4 under duties to include a report to the Board of Supervisors, and the permanent designation of Chairperson and Vice Chairperson.


The additional duty to make a report to the Board was identified as beneficial to the process of audit review, including Board awareness and public transparency.  The designation of Chair and Vice Chair is suggested to address continuity and efficiency in coordination and conducting committee meetings.


The Audit Committee consisting of Tina Scott-Board of Supervisor, Susan Parker-County Administrative Officer, Cathy Saderlund-Auditor-Controller, Tom Marquette and Michael Kamimoto-Grand Jury,    and Ron Nagy-General Public by a vote of five (5) ayes, one (1) nay approved these changes and respectfully requests your Board consideration and ratification of the proposed updates to the Lake County Audit Committee bylaws.
