District 21 gets a 'clean opinion' in yearly audit
Dec 30, 2013 - By Kelli Ameling, Staff Writer
Fremont Count School District 21 recently received a "clean opinion" during the school's annual audit.
During the Fort Washakie board of trustees meeting Dec.18, Tim Fixter of Mckee, Marburger and Fagnant, gave the board the findings of his audit.
"We had a good audit with a 'clean opinion,' which was great," said superintendent Terry Ebert.
During the school year, the school's business manager resigned, which resulted in the Lander-based company completing the audit with three people instead of one.
"All of them were very experienced and capable," Ebert said. "Our current business manager Kirk Schmidt complimented the ladies in the business office, Kay Pingree and Reva Hill, for making the actual audit go smoothly."
"The board was pleased with the results and the positive comment the audit firm made regarding interim business manager and the current staff," Ebert said. "From what I understand, District 21 typically has a good audit report, and this year was not an exception."
The board also approved officer appointments and meeting times. The board unanimously approved Kay Ferris as president, David Snyder as vice president, Bonnie Washakie as clerk and Karen King as treasurer.
Meetings times will remain at 6 p.m. the third Wednesday of each month at the school, 90 Ethete Road, Fort Washakie.
