The Nicholson Water Authority is trying to account for a building that appeared on the authority’s asset report in its yearly audit.
The asset report is part of the audit completed by Hawkins and McNair, Winder.
According to water authority member John Ring, the board at its April 9 meeting voted to instruct its auditor to remove the missing building from its audit, but how it got there is still a question.
Ring recently met with District Attorney Brad Smith in reference to the building and reported his findings back to the water authority on May 7. He said Smith’s view is that the board needs to discuss the issue with its attorney to determine whether there was an accounting discrepancy or to determine that the funds of the authority were properly handled.
