March 18, 2017 5:35 am

The office of the Auditor of the State of Iowa has released a report on compliance by the city of Dawson in northwest Dallas County regarding oversight of the city’s operations and financial transactions.

The report concludes that the city has corrected two earlier findings, but more work needs to be done. The Auditor’s Office recognizes that many tasks are difficult for small cities to accomplish with limited staff, but concludes that more effort needs to be made with respect to the segregation of duties, reconciliation of bank balances, financial reporting, reconciliation of utility billings, collections, and delinquent accounts, the documentation of receipts, and supporting documentation of journal entries, among other bookkeeping and documentation concerns.
