State auditor’s office issues Warden finding

Print Article

WARDEN — The Washington State Auditor’s office issued a report on Monday, Dec. 2 concerning a finding for the City of Warden.

The audit looked at Jan. 1, 2016 to Dec. 31, 2018.

“The City did not have adequate controls over the allocation of shared costs to restricted funds,” stated the report. “The City did not have a written methodology for how it calculated and charged shared services to all funds and departments. We communicated this issue to City management during the past two audits. However, the steps taken by management did not sufficiently address prior audit recommendations, causing a higher percentage of unsupported administrative costs charged to restricted resources than in prior years.”

“They have policies and methods,” said Kriss Shuler, Warden city clerk. “We had the policy but not the method. We have to get written methods for them. It should be taken care of. When they have those policies, they have to follow them to the tee. That’s what we’re doing.”

The auditor’s reports stated that they appreciated the city’s commitment to resolving the finding and will review the corrective action taken during the next regular audit.
