Audit of Nodaway County

Investigators are recommending the Sole County board treasurer splits financial responsibilities to ensure internal controls. They also found a weakness in forms required for any purchases more than $50 and actually suggested that requirement be relaxed somewhat. The investigation also finds bids were not solicited for the road and bridge fuel for the past 2 years, nor for a section of the new administration building. It also found one bid winner came in higher than a cheaper bid, but no documentation was given as to why the more expensive bid was chosen. Other areas include overspending in numerous budgets, a 3.2 million dollar shortfall of under-collateralized bank accounts, and not formally updating Nodaway County's personnel policy manual.
