Lanesboro City Council hears audit report


Mon, Jun 11th, 2012
Posted in Lanesboro All

Jason Boynton from Smith Schafer & Associates presented the Lanesboro City Council with the 2011 Audit Report at their meeting on June 4. He said there were no real concerns, and the city is looking pretty good.

According to Boynton, the unreserved fund balance in the General Fund is 67 percent of the annual general fund expenditures. They like to see the amount be at least 50 percent.

All of the debts are being paid off in a timely manner, and there was no new debt issued in 2011. LGA (local government aid) was decreased by 3.6 percent, but will remain the same in 2012.

The Park and Recreation fund had a deficit balance of $75,432 due to capital projects and utility metering. Right now the Park and Rec. is in a separate fund, but Vickerman explained that with the new GASB 54 law, the city must determine why each fund is separate in their budget. She felt it would be easier to combine it with the General Fund, as it can still be tracked from there. The council approved the switch.

Public Utilities

Council member Joe O’Connor said the Public Utilities Commission interviewed three engineering firms at their recent meeting. They selected Davy Engineering do a study on the overall water system in Lanesboro. According to O’Connor, the study will look at usage, service zones, and summarize current deficiencies.

They also discussed possible solutions to the radium issue with one of the wells. O’Connor said they are not at great risk right now, but have to be in compliance by August of 2014. One solution could be to modify the current rock formation, drill a new well, or blend water from 2-3 wells. A water treatment plan would be the worst-case scenario, as it would have considerable cost.

O’Connor said they are also looking at funding sources. He said hiring Davy Engineering is a good start to the project that could take 2-3 years. The cost for the complete analysis and study is $9,500.

Vickerman wanted it to be clear that the sewer leak was under control, they are not pumping sewer into the river, and it had nothing to do with storm sewer issues that the Charlebois are having.
