Richmond makes do without administrator
Auditor points to weak areas in financial controls
RICHMOND – About a year after the village of Richmond decided not to decide on whether to replace its administrator, officials still are working out the kinks, the village president said.
The village’s auditor – Eder, Casella & Co. of McHenry – identified issues, what it calls material deficiencies in the village’s internal financial controls, in a report delivered to the village’s board in August.
Some concerns are part and parcel with operating an entity with few full-time employees, and others were the result of a new finance clerk taking over right around the time the audit was taking place and the village grappling with how to pay back a $7 million loan to the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, acting Village President Pete Koenig said.
