City council makes short work of meeting

Staff writer

In a meeting lasting only 45 minutes, Hillsboro City Council members gave administrator Larry Paine authorization to consider and arrange temporary financing for upcoming street projects so work can begin before the final cost of the projects is known.

The projects include mill overlay on D St., reconstruction on Wilson St., and work on Kennedy St., A St., and east and west portions of Grand St.

Council members were pleased when Grace Huxman of Adams, Brown, Beran and Ball’s McPherson office reviewed the city’s 2017 audit report Tuesday.

Paine told council members the audit committee last week spent about an hour looking at the report.

Huxman said there are no budget violations, but the size of the city creates a deficiency in that there is not sufficient separation of duties.

The next council meeting will not be June 19, as originally scheduled, because Paine will be traveling. The date will be set after council members consult their calendars.
