The Pineville Board of Al­der­men heard the re­sults of the 2017 au­dit at its meet­ing on Tues­day.

Nick My­ers, CPA, of Jo­plin, gave the re­port. In the open­ing pages of the doc­u­ment, My­ers pre­sented his opin­ion of the au­dit, which he said was a “clean opin­ion,” mean­ing there was noth­ing out of the or­di­nary in the au­dit. He noted that gov­ern­ment funds are partly sub­si­diz­ing the wa­ter and sewer de­part­ments. He also gave a rec­om­men­da­tion, which he gives all his clients, he said, re­gard­ing seg­re­ga­tion of (ac­count­ing) du­ties.

“The more you can break up those func­tions and have an­other per­son look­ing at it, it cuts down on mis­takes,” he said.

Al­der­man Ann Crow­der-San­ders said re­gard­ing the au­dit, “We’re in good mon­e­tary con­di­tion. When you have more in your ac­count than you have bills, you’re do­ing well. We just can’t make the wa­ter and sewer pay for it­self. We don’t have the num­bers. We couldn’t charge enough. We do have a good rate.”

Al­der­man Becky Davis said em­ploy­ees have done a good job with com­pli­ance.

In other busi­ness, al­der­men ap­proved bills in the amount of $19,479.90.
