Century Talks Audit Findings, Policies At Workshop Meeting

February 13, 2018

The Century Town Council held a lengthy workshop session Monday night to discuss recent audit findings and town policies.

“The council has made great effort to stay within budget and going forward that will continue,” Town Clerk Leslie Howington said as the council reviewed audit findings.

For the fiscal year ending September 2016, auditors found over $5,000 in a bank account that did not appear on the books.

“A bank account for utility payment receipts was not recorded or reconciled in the town’s accounting software and was not recorded in the general ledger. However, the account held a year-end balance of $5,078,” the audit stated.

Howington told the council Monday night that the account had been determined to be an account holding daily deposits, and it has now been entered in Quickbooks, the town’s accounting software. Going forward, she said, those transactions will be entered in Quickbooks as deposits are made.

Monday night, the town also reviewed verbiage in several town policies, including call out procedures for utility employees and building rental agreements.
