In a short meeting Tuesday night, the Virgin Valley Water District heard reports from staff on the status of various operations.

Presentation from MacRay Curtis of Wissan, Smith, Racker & Prescott, LLC, the water district’s auditor, showed that there were no concerns found with the recent audit of the VVWD records for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2014.

“We’re presenting what we call a ‘no findings’ report. There was nothing that caused concern through our process,” Curtis said. He also mentioned that monies from potential settlements would not be included in their reports until the settlements were final and the monies had been received by the VVWD.

The VVWD Board unanimously approved adoption of new regulations regarding the Public Records Policy and Fee Schedule to conform to NRS 239, which had some recent changes to its requirements.
