In his letter to village clerks, township clerks, school board clerks, city auditors and county auditors, Auditor Rhodes stated: "There is increasing emphasis on the slogan 'the public's right t6 know' about the public's business. Publication of your annual financial report in a newspaper, as required by law, is in line with this sentiment. The service thereby rendered far outweighs the small amount involved."
