Mayor calls for audit of books
Electric City Mayor Jerry Sands called for an audit of the books again, at the Regional Board of Mayors meeting May 14. He has done so several times several times in the past.
The administration of the Delano Regional Transfer Station and the landfill project have now been taken over by Electric City from Grand Coulee.
At their meeting, more than $1 million was transferred from Grand Coulee accounts to the new administration.
Since Sands has asked for an accounting of the money involved for several months and not been satisfied with responses, he has systematically called for an audit.
Grand Coulee Mayor Chris Christopherson, who has been mayor since January, asked Sands what areas he wanted audited.
It was left to Electric City to research what the state would charge for an up-to-date audit on the accounts.
In other activity, the mayors tabled a request by Sunrise Disposal to change the way it charges for larger dumpsters. The city clerks and mayors raised so many questions about the request that it was decided to table it for further research.
