BELTON - The city of Belton has received a positive report from the auditing firm Jaynes, Reitmeier, Boyd & Therrell P.C. CPA's of Waco.
Mike Abel, a representative of the firm, presented the findings of the city's audit for fiscal year 2010 during the City Council meeting Tuesday.
The report indicated the city's reporting fairly represented its financial position.
Able commended Finance Director Cristy Daniell and Assistant Finance Director Karen Evans on their work.
"We truly got audited this year," Daniell told the council, alluding to the process.
Able later explained there was more to the audit than normal due to the amount of grant funding - more than $500,000 - the city received from the federal government, which required additional reporting.
In other business, the council:
Authorized a contract with KPA Engineers in the amount of $131,695 for a Safe Routes to School Project in the Miller Heights neighborhood.
Approved an amendment to the city's personnel policy to include notification methods for the Equal Employment Opportunity Plan.
Awarded a bid to Rabroker Air Conditioning & Heating for renovations to the Harris Community Center. Also, the council approved a related budget amendment from the General Fund in the amount of $138,868 for repairs and all other net remediation costs.
Awarded a bid to Blacktopper Technology of Blanco for the 2011 Seal Coating Program.
Appointed Denzel Holmes to the library board to fill a vacancy following the resignation of Beata McLendon.
