Steven Clausen, a partner with Dietz, Donald & Company, Certified Public Accountants, recently released a routine agreed-upon  procedures report on the City of Guttenberg for July 1, 2013, through June 30, 2014. 

The following recommendations were made in the audit report. The City should implement procedures to ensure receipts are properly coded.  Minutes  should  be signed  by the Mayor. The City should  review  its sewer rate structure to ensure collection of net receipts of at least 110% of the principal and interest payments due in the fiscal year. The City should transfer $937.01 from the Special Revenue, Local Option Sales Tax Fund to the Debt Service Fund and establish procedures to ensure that accrued interest and bond premiums from the issuance of bonds are deposited in the Debt Service Fund. The City should implement procedures to ensure outstanding checks are reviewed annually and amounts over two years old are remitted to the Office of Treasurer of State, as required.

A copy of the agreed-upon  procedures report is available for review in the City Clerk's Office, in the Office of Auditor of State and on the Auditor of State's website at http://auditor.iowa.gov/reports/index.html.
