COA’s fiscal year changes to calendar year

The budgeting process for St. Joseph County finance director Joni Smith became a little less complicated Tuesday.
Members of the county’s board of commissioners agreed to change the fiscal year for Commission On Aging to the calendar year. The move makes the Jan. 1-Dec. 31 fiscal year consistent with the county’s and other agencies.
Commission On Aging previously operated on a fiscal year starting Oct. 1 and concluding Sept. 30. Because of the change, it will have a 15-month fiscal year currently, a period that began Oct. 1, 2015, and will expire Dec. 31 this year.
Smith said she has discussed the issue with the county’s auditor and COA’s grant-funding agency, and no valid reasons were found to keep the change from being made, she noted.
