Financial Statement Audit

 

Financial Audit Division Report 10-28 Released August 19, 2010

Conclusion

  • The Metropolitan Mosquito Control District’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2009, were presented fairly in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in all material respects.

  • The district’s financial transactions were in accordance with applicable laws, regulations, and policies, including Minnesota Statutes 2009, 473.701 through 473.716.
