Hillsboro receives satisfactory audit

Staff writer

An accountant with the city’s auditing firm gave a mostly satisfactory report to Hillsboro city council members Tuesday, with only a few issues pointed out.

The city’s utility deposit report doesn’t reconcile with the deposit bank account balance, and the Convention and Visitors Bureau wasn’t able to provide all monthly minutes Danielle Hollingshead of Adams, Brown, Beran, and Ball in McPherson said.

Hollingshead reported the city needs to do a better job of recording encumbrances and commitments to unperformed contracts for goods and services. Five encumbrances totaling $406,536 were not recorded properly at year-end, Hollingshead said.

In other matters, the council approved a zoning change for Jost Funeral Home to install cremation equipment; approved a Kansas Public Employees Retirement System program similar to a 401(k); amended the employee handbook to permit payment for overtime instead of comp time only; and approved closing Main St. Sept. 12 for an outdoor movie.
