City receives clean audit from state
January 15, 2013
State auditors gave Issaquah officials solid marks in a routine accountability audit released Nov. 27.
Auditors examined municipal finances for 2011 and focused on primarily on billing, payroll, payments, procurement and public meeting minutes.
Per standard procedure, a team from the state Auditor’s Office did not examine every transaction, activity or area. Instead, auditors scrutinized fields representing the highest risk of noncompliance, misappropriation or misuse.
The audit team determined the city has adequate internal controls in place to safeguard public assets. The city also complied with state laws and regulations, as well as internal rules.
