The Money Question: Centennial Audit
Last month, Nevada Irrigation District released the Centennial Project Audit. A new version of the audit will be reviewed for the first time
this week. You can read the full July report here
, and the new August version here
The original request for the audit was made by NID Board Director, Nancy Weber, back in December 2017. The goal was to reveal how much NID had spent on the project so far, improve cost transparency, and to obtain a final project cost estimate. Unfortunately, the end-product leaves us with more questions than answers.
Why doesn't NID have the proper documentation for all purchased properties?
Why did NID approve the additional spending of $525,000 in closed session?
Even more disappointing, we still don't know how much Centennial will cost or who will pay for the project.
What do we know? NID has budgeted to spend an additional $2 million on the project next year, despite focusing on the "Raw Water Master Plan."
