The Finance and Audit Committee meets four times yearly and reviews the FAC’s financial situation.  

“Commissioner Cornell’s dedication to the mission of FAC has shown through his service on policy committees and his voluntary pursuit of county government education,” said Burroughs in the release. “He was an obvious choice to appoint to this committee, as I know he will act with the association’s best interest at heart.”

While a member of the Finance and Audit Committee, Cornell will work with the FAC board to make decisions and help evaluate the FAC’s financial standing, such as budgets, allocations, and audits.
