PTRPC discusses audit, funded and proposed projects

Wednesday, February 6, 2019

During the Jan. 23 regular meeting of the Pioneer Trails Regional Planning Commission, members heard a report from Randall Fiene, CPA, concerning a recent audit of the commission.

Fiene presented the financial audit for the fiscal year 2018 and gave a brief overview. He reported there were no findings and, in his opinion, no modifications need to be made. Findings from the previous audit have been corrected, he reported, and measures have been put in place to prevent such issues in the future. The ending cash balance for the year is in access of $140,000 from various funding sources, due to the number of completed projects during the 2018 fiscal year.

The commission voted to accept the audit as presented.

In other business, the commission heard an overview of projects funded and proposed in the region from Executive Director Norman Lucas. Funded projects include:

—City of LaMonte Transportation Alternatives Program sidewalk grant.
