The County Auditors’ Association of Ohio (CAAO) recently announced that Clinton County Auditor Terry Habermehl will be assuming leadership within the organization in 2020.
Habermehl was elected Secretary/Treasurer of the association’s Southwest District. In addition to his new role within the district, Habermehl was also appointed to the statewide board’s Executive Committee. He has previously served on the board’s Legislative Committee.
The Southwest District of the County Auditors’ Association of Ohio (CAAO) installed officers for 2020 at their annual Winter Conference. Along with Habermehl, Shelby County Auditor Amy Berning is President and Brown County Auditor Jill Hall is Vice President.
Bill Reineke, Ohio House District 88, was the installation officer during a ceremony Nov. 21 at the Renaissance Columbus/Westerville Polaris.
The District works closely with the CAAO Columbus office to monitor legislative proposals that impact local taxpayers and to offer initiatives that assist County Auditors in carrying out their duties.
During 2020 they anticipate much activity with continuing changes in a variety of state and local tax issues and other legislative initiatives that assist county auditors in carrying out their duties.
The CAAO includes all 88 Ohio county auditors. It was established to promote and protect the interests of the taxpayers of Ohio and to improve the administration of county government.
