Report: Poor accounting means no Jonesboro audit
JONESBORO - The state Legislative Auditor says the town of Jonesboro's financial records could not be audited for the 2012 fiscal year because of accounting inadequacies.
A report released Monday by auditor Daryl Purpera also noted other problems. They include improper accounting of traffic tickets, water and sewer collection issues, benefits going to ineligible employees, improper compensation to the mayor and insufficient effort to collect delinquent fines and forfeitures.
The audit was performed by an independent CPA firm. The News-Star of Monroe reports that town officials responded that they are taking steps to address the 19 findings cited in the report.
