Golf course audit for 2013 possible

Published 8:57am Monday, March 17, 2014

Fergus Falls Finance Director Bill Sonmor recommends an audit of the Pebble Lake Golf Club for 2013. The city council will vote on a resolution to order the audit at its meeting Monday.

“We haven’t done it for a number of years,” Sonmor said.

At its last meeting, the council approved providing the golf course with March funding in the amount of $33,750 from the general fund of the city. The request was the main reason Sonmor suggested the audit.

“It’s just because we’re putting public dollars into it… that I just think that it would be a good thing,” Sonmor said.

The cost for the audit would be $5,300, which is the responsibility of the city. The money will come from the city’s golf course budget. The city has $58,235 in funds available that have been allocated to the golf course. Both the March funding request and audit cost will come from this budget.

According to the city’s lease agreement with the golf course, an audit of the golf club’s financial statements can be done at the request of the city.

The audit field work would be done during the week of the city audit, March 24-28.

Also on Monday’s council agenda, it will vote on a resolution to approve the LB Homes request to use city property for the Garden of Hope project, hear a legislative update from the mayor and city administrator, and vote on a resolution involving utility rate adjustments.

The city council will meet at 5:30 p.m. Monday in council chambers at city hall.
