STE. GENEVIEVE COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Missouri State Auditor Tom Schweich has released the audit of Ste. Genevieve County as fair.

The state routinely audits counties that do not elect a county auditor, according to Schweich's office.

According to Schweich's office, the county collector has not performed bank reconciliation's of the main account since June 2012, and does not monthly reconcile the protested tax account.

To avoid writing insufficient fund checks in the main account, the county collector transferred $137,810 from the protested tax account to the main account but transferred back $139,985 a month later.

According to the auditor, the county collector could not explain why the main account was short, or why $2,175 more was returned to the protested tax account than was borrowed.

Also in the audit, Schweich's office says the sheriff's office does not perform a periodic physical inventory of all seized property and reconcile the results to seized property records.

The deputy office clerk has not been routinely following up on outstanding checks for the inmate account, according to Schweich's office. On December 31, 2012, 133 checks totaling $2,314 had been outstanding for over a year, with some dating back to 2009.

In addition, Schweich's office says the road and bridge department still needs to improve controls and procedures over fuel use and purchases.

Although the road and bridge supervisor maintains a log of fuel pumped, he does not reconcile fuel pumped to fuel purchased each month, according to Schweich's office.
