Auditor: Borough review comes back ‘clean’

By Associated Press 10:49 AM February 13, 2014

Audit follows 2012 financial issues

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) – An independent auditor hired to review the City and Borough of Juneau’s finances said his review came back “clean.”

Max Mertz of Elgee Rehfeld Mertz, LLC, told the Assembly’s Finance Committee Wednesday that his firm did not find any significant problems.

The Juneau Empire reports (http://bit.ly/1eSwSnP ) the audit of 2012 finances by the same firm found issues related to the close of annual accounting records and production of financial reports. Those were attributed in part to city staff turnover and not properly preparing new employees for completing the complex tasks.

After the presentation, Mertz said the city had been working hard to address the previously raised concerns. He said the 2012 findings did not adversely affect city finances.
