Carroll County Watershed Authority board members met in a brief session Sept. 24 with only reports made. No votes were taken on any items.
Authority members were advised by board member Dale Kelley that the Tennessee General Assembly’s Government Operations Committee has recommended the extension of the Carroll County Watershed Authority for another eight years based on their review of the Watershed activities and upon the operation that provides recreational activities, economic development, and business and industry development.
Board chairman Tommy Surber said there were two findings in the audit report. It was noted that the Authority’s management did not design and implement adequate internal controls over revenues and expenditures. Also the Authority’s board of directors did not have a conflict-of-interest policy, and one board member, Kenny McBride, did not consistently attend meetings during fiscal year 2018.
Kelley said new policies are being developed and will be presented to the board in the near future.
Kelley said the Dixie Triathlon was a huge success again this year with approximately 200 participants.
The next meeting of the Watershed Authority is Oct. 22 at 2 p.m. at Huntingdon City Hall’s upstairs conference room.
