State to waive city’s audits
Published: April 7,2010
BAY ST. LOUIS — Gov. Haley Barbour has signed a bill giving the City of Bay St. Louis a waiver on two years’ worth of required state audits because records were lost to Hurricane Katrina.
The city will get a waiver on state-required audits for the 2004 and 2005 fiscal years because officials said when Katrina hit, the city was working on its 2004 audit and had not yet done one for 2005.
The city’s computer system at the time didn’t back up some files electronically, but instead made only paper printouts.
Many printouts were lost when Katrina pushed about five feet of water into city hall.
City Clerk David Kolf tells The Sun Herald that the city has moved its offices to higher ground, where officials have a new accounting system with improved backup.
