Dear Taxpayers and Friends of Lawrence County;

As your new Controller, I welcome you to our website.

I am Proud to be the 7th Controller of this fine County since its establishment in 1931. I am very excited to be the watchdog over County Funds and pledge to be diligent in my efforts. As we move into a new era in Lawrence County, it is extremely important to prepare ourselves for the next decade and beyond. We must utilize technology and all best business practices to keep our County responsive to the needs and services that our Taxpayers require and expect.

My many years in Public Accounting have made me uniquely qualified to sharpen our audit procedures and help to ensure that we inspect, what we except. Our motto is to be "Love many and trust few". The internal accounting controls and segregation of duties throughout our County will be monitored and strengthened to ensure against neglect, fraud, waste and abuse.

Myself and my staff will be glad to assist you with any issue or problem that may arise. Please do not hesitate to visit or contact me personally.

Respectfully,

Lawrence County Controller
David C. Gettings

Please Meet My Staff

The Controller’s Office is commonly called the “watchdog” of the County Funds.
The County Code established that “The Controller shall supervise the fiscal affairs of the County, including the accounts and official acts relating thereto of all officers or other persons who shall collect, receive, hold, or disburse the public monies of the County.” In other words, the Controller is the Chief Accountant and Auditor of the County.

The Controller’s Office was established by an Act of Legislation on September 5, 1931. The office is organized into several distinct departments:

  • Accounts Payable

  • Internal Auditing

  • Payroll

  • Retirement

The Controller is also responsible for receiving sealed County bids and serves
on the Salary Board, Prison Board and the Retirement Board
