The audit for the year ending December 31, 2015, reveals the town of Jena is in very sound financial condition, as the mayor and members of the Town Council learned during the regular July meeting held Tuesday night of last week. Rev. Reid Terry, pastor of Searcy Baptist Church, opened the meeting with prayer and led in the pledge of allegiance. The Council attended to routine matters such as roll call and approving the minutes, prior to the audit report. Wes Gore, CPA, with the auditing firm of Silas Simmons, LLC of Natchez, Mississippi, met with the council and mayor to go over the contents of the latest town audit.
