Roanoke hears audit report

  • Updated


ROANOKE - The past fiscal year was a step toward the way financial conditions were before the sudden onset of COVID-19, auditor Sandy Cook of the Peoria firm of Clifton Larson Allen told the village board at Monday evening's meeting.

Water revenue and expenses have remained about the same over the past four years.

An ongoing accounting weakness reported is a lack of segregation of duties due to limited personnel resources, a common factor in small government. Cook noted that could cause higher risk for mistakes. She told board members they should be vigilant in reviewing finances to help offset the problem.
