Galloway follows up with Shelbina municipal court after previous audit rates performance as poor

Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway released a follow-up report of the Shelbina municipal court after a previous audit rated their overall performance as poor.

Galloway said that in January, she found disorganized and inaccurate records and poor bookkeeping that led to $1,280 in missing payments.

“I commend the Shelbina municipal court on their efforts to implement the recommendations my staff provided in our January audit,” Galloway said. “Although there is still room for improvement, steps have been taken to ensure transparent and accurate practices.”

The progress report showed efforts to significantly improve documentation procedures. The court now transmits funds received to the city treasurer daily, along with an income report detailing receipt numbers and amounts paid.

Galloway said the municipal division has implemented an electronic receipt system and no longer has issues with manual receipts.

The Shelbina Police Department also implemented an electronic ticketing system, Galloway said.

The previous audit had 15 areas of concern to evaluate during the follow-up review. Galloway said seven recommendations were fully implemented and progress had been made on the other recommendations.
