Changes made after parks audit finds lax cash handling

KAILUA-KONA >> Parks supervisors are overseeing cash from facilities rentals after an audit found accounting issues.

West Hawaii Today reports three Department of Parks and Recreation offices rent out facilities to the community, bringing in $176,000 for nearly 1,300 permits last fiscal year.

The audit found instances where workers made errors, failed to make some deposits and delayed others, and did not document overages and shortages.

Legislative auditor Bonnie Nims said part of the problem is that it’s impossible to tell how much money never made it to the county.

Department deputy director James Komata said the audit provided the opportunity to improve.

The department added another paper trail when it started accepting credit cards, and has also improved training and implemented new software.
