On Friday April 29, 2022 Commissioner Goffena sign Journal Vouchers:
#945 Melstone Elementary Void payroll Check # 21575 from last year.
#946 Melstone School District Void payroll Check #21791 (Stop payment)
#947 The refund revolving account is short; this account is strictly a revolving account so it should be at zero balance as of 2/28/2022.
#948 Claim #21395 was posted to fund 2800 and should have been posted to the general fund for the mental health annual participation. This is not an alcohol rehab claim. The correct fund and object code should have been 1000-440100-310.
#949 To correct PPE taken out of Hawk Creek instead of Dean Creek.
#950 The FAA grant fund 2172 has a negative cash balance, so we are moving the money from the airport fund 2170 to cover the shortage. Per the auditor the loan to cover the shortage in the grant should be processed through fund 2172, so we are moving that money as week.
#952 Clerk of Court uses her passport acct #410333 to pay for jury supplies and then gets reimbursed. Claim #22484 was mis0coded to District Court #410330 and should have been #410333.
#953 This adjusting entry is fixing one that the auditors had us do back in Feb. 2020. It did not balance with Melstone School books, and their auditor told them not to post it on their side. This brings our books completely in balance with Melstone’s books.
#955 Balance water commissioners’ funds to actual.
#956 We are transferring money from fund 2894 to cover deficit cash balances in funds 2855 and 4310. Per Fire Warden Justin Russell we need to move the money from 2340 to 2345 to close out the fund.
#957 Too many expenses for the Farrell Street bridge project were taken out of the grant fund 4368. We are moving those expenses to the bridge fund where they should have come out of from the beginning.
