State Audit Report Released on Pocahontas County
April 27, 2022 9:53am
State Auditor Rob Sand has released an audit report on Pocahontas County.
According to the report, Pocahontas County's revenues totaled nearly 24-million dollars for the previous fiscal year that ended June 30th, which is a 54-percent increase over the previous year. The increase in revenue is primarily due to an increase in drainage assessment collections and contributions from the Iowa DOT.
Expenses for county operations last fiscal year totaled nearly 17-million dollars, a 14-percent increase from the prior year. The jump in expenses is mostly due to costs related to drainage district and secondary road projects.
Auditor Sand reported findings related to the receipt and expenditure of taxpayer funds that address issues such as lack of segregation of duties, accounts receivable not properly recorded in the county's financial statements, and lack of approval for capital asset deletions. Sand provided Pocahontas County with recommendations to address each of the findings. All of the findings are repeated from the previous year.
