County commissioners review and audit fiscal affairs

The Haakon County Board of Commissioners met Friday, July 23, at 2:00 p.m. for a special auditing meeting.

Members present at the meeting were Rita O'Connell, Nick Konst, Gary Snook, Don Eymer and Neal Brunskill.

David Schlosser, Department of Legislative Audit, Pierre, met with the group to have an extensive discussion to review and audit the fiscal affairs of Haakon County. Every two years an auditor from Pierre comes to Philip to meet with the commissioners. Schlosser talked about planning and performing an audit of the financial statements of Haakon County. Commissioners voted to rescind resolution number 2008-3 on private drive maintenance. At the end of the year, the emergency management fund and the 9-1-1 fund were over budget due to lack of transfers of cash.

The budget committee will have a meeting before the regular August commissioner meeting. The highway fund, emergency management, 9-1-1 and courthouse plumbing topics were all tabled until the next meeting.

The next regular meeting will be Tuesday, August 3, in the commissioner's room of the Haakon County Courthouse.
