Lack of 2013 audit explained to Mammoth residents

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

This is to inform the citizens of Mammoth as to why the audit for 2013 has never been completed.

The audit began in June 2013 and was never completed because the bank accounts did not reconcile to the general ledger. It appears that there were missing grant documents, missing invoices supporting documentation and deposits with no supporting documentation. The missing invoices amounted to approximately $469,106.25.

Undocumented credit card charges: approximately $5,110.22. These charges ranged from grocery store, restaurants and Lego Shop at Home to pizza. Grant ledger with no invoices. Approximately $25,802.38. Deposits with no support. Approximately $14,571.40. Expenditures with no invoices. Approximately $28,567.00. In June 2013 there was $543,157.25 that was not accounted for.

There is also a matter of an account that had over $600,000.00 in it. When I ask about where the money is being spent, one of their smart replies is “We bought cement. I understand that there is maybe $100,000.00 left in the account.

If you will total the above figure $543,157.25 with the approximate $500,000.00 you will now have over a MILLION DOLLARS unaccounted for. One million dollars unaccounted for, in just over a year. I wonder how much it will be if they are elected for another term.

This is what happens when your elected officials decide that they do not have to give, or even show, receipts to you , the public, or even Council members.

The Town Manager is NOW working on a budget for the Fiscal Year 2015. How can she and her cohorts balance the budget when she cannot even submit the paperwork to have the 2013 audit completed. Remember the audit was started in June, 2013 and here it is July,2014 and still no completed audit,but, yet, they are balancing the budget with only one meeting.

Call the Auditor General and ask why the Town of Mammoth does not have an audit every two years.

Believe me, heads are going to roll, and, yes, people will probably be going to jail. What they are doing is illegal and it is going to stop. Oh sure, they will say “I didn’t know what was happening.” or “Nobody told me about it.”Nothing but excuses, but, then again, the jailhouses are full of people with excuses.

One of our police officers, not Chief anymore, invited me to investigate him and I did. I went one step further and investigated all the things that I thought were wrong here in this Town (money unaccounted for, illegal meetings and more). Now, I am not alone in this investigation.

Citizens of Mammoth, you have the right to go to the Town Council Meetings and ask questions all through the meeting. Do not let them fool you. They have been getting away with it too long. Go to the meeting and take your Town back.

All of the information above is supported by documents and is all true.
