JEFFERSON CITY - Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway announced her office has begun an audit of the village of Centertown.

Centertown is a small village of fewer than 300 residents located in western Cole County.

Centertown citizens requested the audit through the petition process which required 52 signatures.

Galloway said this kind of citizen involvement is how government continues to run efficiently.

"When citizens are engaged, the process works to improve government operations," Galloway said.

Galloway said she encourages anyone with information related to the audit to contact the State Auditor's Whistleblower Hotline at 800-347-8597.
