Porter Library receives clean audit
Westlake Porter Public Library has passed its recent audit, which means auditors found no weaknesses or deficiencies in the library’s financial management and record-keeping. In addition, the library was found to be in compliance with the laws, regulations, contracts and other agreements it is required to meet. This continues the library’s longstanding record of successful audits.
“Our Finance Department works very hard to make sure the library is a good steward of the funds entrusted to us by the community,” said Library Director Andrew Mangels. “So I am not at all surprised by this result.”
The library is required by the state to have its books audited every other year. This year’s audit took place in late spring, and covered the years 2012 and 2013.
Julian and Grube Inc. performed audit procedures agreed upon by the board of trustees, library management and the state auditor. The procedures were conducted in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants attestation standards and the Comptroller General of the United States Government Auditing Standards. All records were found to be in compliance with the standards.
