Hart Board Choosing New Auditors

The Hart district governing board will choose a new auditing firm for its next Measure V performance audit and decide whether to hire a consulting firm to gauge the feasibility of a Proposition 39 bond measure at its next meeting, scheduled for Wednesday.

A committee formed to review qualified audit firms to replace Moss Adams plans to recommend the firm of Vicenti, Lloyd & Stutzman to perform auditing services of Measure V expenditures for the fiscal years ending June 30, 2007, 2008 and 2009.

Moss Adams had already started the 2006-07 audit a year ago, but was asked to stop and the board decided to put out a bid for the job.

Moss Adams found in its 2005-06 audit that the district could not provide proof of complete compliance with Measure V and Proposition 39 funding source requirements due to transfers between accounts that were not properly documented.

The William S. Hart Union High School District board will also vote on whether to hire a consulting group to gauge the feasibility of a potential Proposition 39 bond measure.

The Hart district currently has a number of capital facilities projects, including the modernization of older schools and the building of new schools, that are awaiting a funding source. A bond measure feasibility consultant would analyze the situation by testing public opinion through a telephone poll.

The Growth Committee plans to recommend TBW&B, which worked closely with College of the Canyons as a consultant in the successful passage of Measure M in 2007. The cost for polling services is estimated to be $25,000.

Ben Dolinka, of the Dolinka Group, will be attending the meeting to present an update of the district's Capital Facilities Funding Plan.

The plan is updated quarterly and reviewed periodically by the governing board.

When the plan was presented for review in July, it showed a substantial shortfall between revenues and project costs.

The board will also hear an update on the status of new construction projects at the meeting.
