State Auditor Rob Sand today (Thur) released an audit report on the Pocahontas County Solid Waste Commission.

According to the report, the Commission had total receipts of over 433-thousand dollars for the year ended June 30th, 2023, an increase of nearly 2.7-percent. Disbursements for the year totaled nearly 420-thousand dollars, an increase of less than one-percent.

Sand reported two findings related to the receipt and disbursement of taxpayer funds. The findings address a lack of segregation of duties and a lack of evidence of independent review of the monthly bank-to-book reconciliations. Sand provided the Pocahontas County Solid Waste Commission with recommendations to address each of the findings. One of the findings is repeated from the prior year.
