Thu 4-15-2021

(Des Moines)-- State Auditor Rob Sand has released the findings of an audit report on Dickinson county. It shows the county's revenues totaled slightly more than $20.6 million for the year ended June 30th, 2020, an increase of 34.4 percent over the prior year. Expenses totaled a little more than $16.9 million, up 3.5 percent from the prior year. The report says the increase in revenues is due largely to capital contributions received from the Dickinson County Conservation Foundation and the Iowa Department of Transportation.

The report lists 10 findings related to the receipt and expenditure of taxpayer funds. They address a lack of segregation of duties, adjustments needed to properly record receivables, payables, inventory and capital assets additions in financial statements, disbursements exceeding budgeted amounts prior to amendment and deficit fund balances in three county funds. The county issued responses to the findings and how it plans to remedy them.
