LOCAL FINANCES: Solid waste reacts to state audit

April 22, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — A local governing board examined variances with its finances in light of a recent audit and is hoping to have found the solution.

As is the case with every governing body, the Whitley County Solid Waste Management District (WCSWMD) was audited by the State Board of Accounts.

WCSWMD’s report was released Jan. 31. The board of accounts noted on the audit some faults with the district. However, one of those problems could be the solution.

The district was noted for not having an accounting software program that lined up with what the state board of accounts desired. There is now a new software program known as Keystone being used by WCSWMD, and that could be the solution to some problems.

“We have not had the proper software that the state board of accounts wanted us to have,” said Tom Rethlake, president of the Solid Waste Board and county commissioner. “Now that we have it hopefully some of these problems will be solved.”

WCSWMD Director Jorell Tucker said Keystone could make a big difference.
