Wayne Beyer of Pleasanton-based Beyer & Co. has issued an “unqualified opinion” of Wilson County’s fiscal year 2012 books, according to an audit report he presented during the April 8 meeting of the Wilson County Commissioners Court. This means that the county again has received a clean audit.

Beyer’s report contained just three findings with recommendations for corrective action. Two findings were related to the timesheets being used by employees of precincts 2 and 4, the Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office, and the Wilson County Emergency Management Agency. One relates to a finding that these workers are not using the same timesheets as other workers. Beyer alleges in his other finding that these employees are not listing actual times clocked in and clocked out on their respective timesheets.

The third finding indicates that the county did not have a current depository contract when the audit was performed.

Under “financial highlights,” Beyer reported that the county’s assets exceeded its liabilities at the close of the fiscal year by $15,500,534.

“Of this amount, $5,878,577 (unrestricted net assets) may be used to meet the government’s ongoing obligations to citizens and creditors,” he wrote.

Beyer also mentioned that property taxes increased by $633,510 while expenses saw an overall reduction of $458,767.

Also during the meeting, the commissioners had a lengthy discussion with architect Lyndsay Thorn about his company’s progress related to the renovation of the Wilson County Courthouse and the remodeling of Wilson County Courthouse Annex III. While this discussion took place as part of an agenda item related to a “public hearing,” little public interaction occurred during the conversation in which participants were huddled around the table.

In other business, the commissioners voted not to a ban outdoor burning at this time. Edwin Baker, coordinator of the Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office, said that the county has an average Keetch-Byram Drought Index that is below 500. Despite ongoing dry conditions, from which a brief respite came in the form of rain in the first week of the month, he said the county’s greatest concern is people who are burning at night.

The commissioners also approved the following resolutions:

•Proclaiming April as Child Abuse Prevention Month

•Proclaiming April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month

•Allowing the Sam Fore Jr. Wilson County Public Library to use the courthouse parking lot and grounds for its “Read and Feed” event June 27.

•Allowing the Floresville Chamber of Commerce to use the courthouse grounds and parking lot for its Market Day event May 18, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

•Support of the Wilson Area Housing Foundation’s annual Cowboy Breakfast, April 20.

In attendance: Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney and commissioners Albert Gamez Jr., Paul Pfeil, Ricky Morales, and Larry Wiley; County Clerk Eva Martinez, County Attorney Daynah Fallwell, Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr., County Auditor Verna Gorzell, Treasurer Jan Hartl, Library Director Nicki Stohr, Assistant County Auditor Kristin Labus, Lisa Eberhardt of the Wilson County Auditor’s Office, and Theresa Frucht of the Wilson County Emergency Management Agency.

If we have that much money, why can't the largest department in the county get a raise for their employees to keep them here instead of going to other neighboring counties and cities? Do you know that two cities in this county, ... More ›
