ROCK SPRINGS — In a letter to the Wyoming Department of Audit, the City of Rock Springs requested an extension for turning in its annual financial statement audit.

The Rock Springs City Council will meet on Tuesday, December 21, at 7 p.m. at City Hall for its regularly scheduled meeting.

Under correspondence for tomorrow’s meeting, City of Rock Springs Director of Finance and Administration Matthew McBurnett submitted a letter to the Wyoming Department of Audit informing them that the City of Rock Springs cannot meet its statutory deadline for the annual financial statement audit of Fiscal Year 2021. The audit is supposed to be submitted by December 31, 2021.

“This is due to our auditors, McGee, Hearne & Paiz LLP, being unable to finish compliance audit procedures of our Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds until the Federal Officer of Management and Budget issued the 2021 Compliance Supplement Addendum, which was issued on December 3, 2021,” the letter states. “Our auditors are now working to finish our audit and are anticipating issuing our completed audit in early January 2022.”

McBurnett has requested until January 31, 2022, to complete the audit.
