Every year a group of fresh faces moves into the park board offices for several weeks. Auditors, they have an important task to get done — to make sure our organization accounting is up to par and in accordance with federal and state mandates.
While here, they’ll look to see that the park board’s reporting and actuals match up. They’ll scour budgets to make sure revenues and expenditures are added to and taken from the correct funding sources. They’ll also sift through purchase orders, expense reports and receipts to make sure departments report their spending honestly and accurately.
