The Iowa State Auditor’s Office is continuing their audit of Riverside’s finances. On March 6th, they received an extension of 45 business days to complete the audit report and financial statement.
Jennifer Campell, with the Auditor’s Office, says they’re reviewing all of the city’s finances looking for discrepancies and instances of noncompliance with state law.
The audit was pursued by the Riverside City Council after a special investigation into their flexible spending account found questionable disbursements. That investigation was requested by Rusty Rogerson shortly after taking the position of City Administrator. The disbursements in question occurred between July of 2006 and December of 2012, and amount to around $60,000.
