The latest independent audit of the Clark County Fiscal Court's financial condition has found that the court is obligated to repay certain jail canteen funds, but did not reveal any other instances of non-compliance.
The Fiscal Court was presented with the 60-page audit at its regular meeting Wednesday. It warned that $145,817 of funds from the Clark County Detention Center's canteen account were wrongly appropriated for medical expenses and supplies during the 2005-06 fiscal year.
Officials had expected the finding after an audit of fiscal year 2004-05 identified a similar instance of non-compliance - a $63,000 renovation project that added 30 beds to the jail's basement in 2004.
In preparation, funds to reimburse the canteen account have been earmarked in the county's 2007-08 budget, which received a first reading Wednesday. Money for the renovation project has also been repaid.
