Abstract

Auditor of State Mary Mosiman today released a Report on the Status of Findings and Recommendations from the City of Pleasant Plain’s Periodic Examination Report dated January 22, 2015. The engagement was performed pursuant to Chapter 11.6 of the Code of Iowa and covered the period March 1, 2016 through August 31, 2016. The City Council has a fiduciary responsibility to provide oversight of the City’s operations and financial transactions. Oversight is typically defined as the “watchful and responsible care” a governing body exercises in its fiduciary capacity. Many of the findings included in this report indicate the City Council needs to exercise additional fiduciary oversight. While two of the fourteen findings reported in the Periodic Examination Report dated January 22, 2015 have been corrected and five have been partially corrected, seven of the fourteen findings are repeated in this report as “not corrected”. One additional finding identified during the follow-up procedures is also included in this report. A copy of the City of Pleasant Plain’s Report on the Status of Periodic Examination Findings and Recommendations is available for review in the City Clerk’s Office, in the Office of Auditor of State and on the Auditor of State’s web site at https://auditor.iowa.gov/reports/1422-0480-EPFP.
