The Caneyville City Commission heard the City’s 2012-2013 Audit report during its regularly-scheduled Monday, Feb. 10 meeting.
Dan Drane, of Drane & Company, PLLC., presented the report and said he found no disagreements with management and no exceptions, making the audit a “clean opinion.”
Drane said the City of Caneyville’s total assets were $4.3 million and debts were $800,000 making the City’s bottom line $3.5 million for the 2012-2013 Fiscal Year.
In addition, the Caneyville Water and Sewer Department saw a $268,000 net improvement.
Drane said Caneyville’s Water is mainly self-sufficient, and the Sewer is “more than paying its own way,” and “most of the bottom line is the Sewer.”
Drane said the only new long-term debt garnered in the 2012-2013 Fiscal Year was the City’s KIA loan equaling about $100,000.
“For the size you are, you’re doing all you can do,” said Drane.
