County must specify who ‘lent’ it cash
Glacier County officials’ responses on how they were going to correct the findings in the FY 2017 and FY 2018 audits were not specific enough for State of Montana officials. They have until Wednesday, July 31, to submit additional, detailed information to the Department of Administration (DOA).
On Thursday, July 18, Chet McLean, CPA, Local Government Audit Manager for the Department of Administration’s Local Government Services Statewide Accounting Bureau, notified county officials several responses to the findings “lacked the necessary elements” required. “As such, we are requesting additional information be submitted to the Department within (30) days of the audit report issuance or July 31, 2019.”
One of the requests for information asks County officials to “specify the County will determine which agency funds have lent the County cash” and that the County will “implement agreements…regarding the borrowing with terms for repayment.”
The chart below lists the other specific audit findings and the additional information DOA requested from the Glacier County Commissioners, Chief Financial Officer Chancy Kittson, Glacier County Attorney Terryl Matt, Treasurer Don Wilson and Clerk and Recorder Mandi Bird Kennerly.
