Todd Fiscal Court has received a mostly positive state audit report.
The document issued by State Auditor Adam Edelen says the audit found the county’s financial statements fairly represent the county’s business during the last fiscal year.
As is often the case in smaller counties, the report says the county lacks segregation of duties in accounting functions, as the treasurer receives, records and deposits all funds.
The auditor does not allege any wrong-doing in any way, but recommends that the same person not perform all of the county’s accounting duties. These recommendations are almost always made to counties with very few employees, who lack the manpower to segregate duties to the liking of the state.
The auditor also recommends that the county should do a better job of keeping inventory of its property, to which Judge-Executive Darryl Greenfield says they are working on.
Lastly, the auditor says the Todd County treasurer was not supplied all of the bank statements, invoices and debt documents regarding payments on the jail debts and construction of the new justice center.
Once again, there are no accusations of wrong-doing, but the auditor says better record-keeping is needed.
