GRANTS, N.M. (AP) — An independent audit says a financially strapped New Mexico county exceeded its budget authority for fiscal year 2017 by around $1.66 million

The Gallup Independent reports independent auditors Harshwal and Company found that Cibola County repeatedly exceeded its budget authority every fiscal year since 2013.

The company disclaimed Cibola County's FY 2017 audit in its report submitted to the state auditor's office April 30 and released last week.

Harshwal said the company wasn't able to obtain sufficient and appropriate audit evidence to provide a basis for an audit opinion.

Cibola County Manager Kate Fletcher says Board of Commissioners will hold an audit workshop on Monday to discuss with the public how the county plans to deal with the audit findings.
