Audit passes with flying colors

MINDEN – Douglas County’s annual government audit yielded complimentary marks and no violations for the 1999-2000 fiscal year.

Amy Allen of Kafoury, Armstrong and Co. presented results Thursday of audits done for the county, towns and East Fork Fire and Paramedic districts.

The entities got an unqualified report, which Allen said is the highest level of assurance the firm can give for fiscal reviews. She said the firm found no budget or legal violations and the report revealed a “conservative and accurate budget process.”

“I haven’t seen a much more stellar report than that for any other government agency,” said County Commissioner Bernie Curtis.

Commissioner Steve Weissinger asked for a letter grade.

“I would give you an A,” said Allen.

Allen said the county has $196 million in assets and $48 million in liability. She said revenue for FY 99-00 was up $4.5 million.

The county has enjoyed stable finances since dealing with shortfalls in the mid-1990s.
