Waterloo residents request more auditing of city finances

April 21, 2019

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Some Waterloo residents are asking the Iowa State Auditor’s Office to conduct complete or partial audit of the city’s financial transactions.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports 148 residents signed a petition earlier this month asking for additional auditing work.

The state office will meet with RSM, which conducted the city audit for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2018, to determine whether the firm looked at issues raised by the petitioners.

Jennifer Campbell, a manager at the auditor’s office, said she could not discuss specific concerns raised by the petitioners.

Resident Forest Dillavou, who helped collect signatures, said the main question concerns transfers of money between various city operating funds.

Mayor Quentin Hart said the auditor’s office hasn’t explained the exact concerns presented by the petitioners.
