YUTAN – According to the library report for the City of Yutan, Director Angie Watson has not received the invoices, receipts, bills and claims that she has been inquiring about for months.
The library’s Quickbooks system is set up and ready for input on the data, Watson stated in her report.
Following the May 19 city council meeting, Watson and Scott Childers of the Southeast Library System explained the library’s finances are separate of the city, according to state statute.
Several months ago, Watson brought the matter to the city council’s attention because the city’s accounting did not match that of the state or library’s reports.
In addition, Watson said donations to the library are deposited into the city’s general fund.
“It looks like it’s going in, but it doesn’t,” Watson said following the May 19 meeting.
Watson is requesting all records dating back to Oct. 1, 2014.
In other library news, the library received an Ezra Jack Keats Foundation grant in the amount of $500 for the summer reading participants to make hardcover-bound books.
The library also reports on its presenters. There were nine listed on the report – Humane Society, Krazy K, Doctor Oxygen, Fontanelle Raptor Recovery, Yutan Fire Department and Nebraska Game and Parks.
Donated were tickets from the Omaha Storm Chasers Salty Dog.
