Treasurer again gets failing grades
For the fourth time in as many years, the Waynesboro city treasurer’s lack of office control, tardy accounting and sloppy recordkeeping have raised red flags in a state audit report.

Sandra “Sandee” Dixon, “continues to not maintain sufficient internal control over state funds or comply with state laws and regulations …” leaving her office “at risk of accounting and other bookkeeping errors,” state Auditor Walter Kucharski writes in a letter to Mayor Tim Williams. “We have issued essentially the same audit findings over the last four audits.”

Under Dixon since 2005, the Treasurer’s Office has botched the handling of about $400,000 in city and state money: about $300,000 in tax and fee collections were not sent to the state in a timely manner, and the city lost $55,000 in revenue and interest income, according to state audits and city officials. ...
