Council will hold special meeting Jan. 21
to address a financial house in disorder
By Ralph Dennis, Contributing Writer
The 2015 audit for the city of Nelson has been delivered. It is not a good one. Ten matters of errors or discrepancies were cited.
This audit, filled with problems found in the city’s books, will be presented to the council at a special meeting on Thursday, January 21, for the purpose of receiving the presentation and explanation from the auditing firm of Welch, Walker & Associates. The meeting is at 7 p.m. and is open to the public.
Most of the problems cited were tied to poor or non-existent record-keeping, making it hard to trace where funds from the city had actually gone.
