Iowa State Auditor Mary Mosiman released a report today on a special investigation of the city of Riverside from July 1, 2006 through December 31, 2012. Riverside city officials requested the audit after concerns arose with the administration of the City’s Flexible Spending Accounts offered to city employees. The investigation identified over $64,000 of improper disbursements related to the FSA’s. Approximately $274,000 additional disbursements were also seen as problematic. The report recommends strengthening the City’s internal controls. Copies of the report were also filed with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, the Washington County Attorney’s Office and the State Attorney General Office. Riverside City Administrator Rusty Rogerson tells KCII News that he requested the investigation when he saw potential issues with the disbursements shortly after he accepted his position with the city in 2012.
