Frances Steppler asked about sanitation requirements on church dinners, food sales etc. and was informed that so far the inspection of the various places holding this type of func- tion has not been part of the du- ties of the SanitarianandHealth Doctor. At the conclusion of tls meeting, a petition was present- ed. which had been signed by 145 of the registered electors in Precinct 7 at Lambert, to change their polling place from the Lambert School to the Lam- bert Fire Hall. Since holding the election at the school caus- es many problems and con- flicts, a motion was made by Andrew Petersen Jr., seconded by E. H. Wick and carried, that the polling place be charged to the Lambert Fire Hall, and the clerk will notify all registered electors of the change. A petition was presented by 15 of the 22 registered elec- tors in Precinct 8 at Enid to have their boundaries chang- ed, so that they would be in- cluded in the Lambert pre- cinct. It has been increasing- ly difficult to secure judges and a place to hold the elec- tion, so on motion made by E. H. Wick, seconded by Harold Burke and carried, it was agreed to have the boundaries changed and ailregiateredelec- tors will be notified. The Coun- ty Surveyor will also be con- tacted so that precinctboundar- ies can be drawn up and a new precinct map made. The remainder of the day was spent going over claims.

(Noni) Morasko 970; Referen- dum No. 68 -- For 890; Against 1938. Harold Henderson called to request the CountY to pay their share of his Retirement for the past two years. Since he was part time help this had not been witleld. They agreed todothis as seou as he found out the exact requirements from the State Re- tirement Board. A delegation consisting of Gordon Oakland, Melvin Rau- sehendorfer, Charlie Williams, Richard L. Stotts, Harold Rhines, Gene Mickelsmt, Allen (Continued oa pqe 5B) Examiner's Report... (Continued from Page 2B) we recommend that the Commissioners consider obtaining ablanket surety bond which would provide coverage for all officers snd em- playees of the County. Claims During the examination of County claims, we noted that the Sheriff had been receiving one hundred ($100.00) dollar s per month over and above his legal salary for jailer services. This would appear to be contrary to the provisions of Sections 25-605 and 25-609, R.C.M., 1947, iv that this payment exceeds that authorized. Clerk and Recorder We noted that the Clerk and Recorder was not examining the real property assessment bonk as is required by Suctiou 84-4114, R.C.M., 1947. Treasurer At the time of this examination, we noted that the end of the month totals on the Treasurer's cash book, general ledger and monthly report were not all in agreement, although the total Treasurer' s cash accounts were in agreement with the cash and securities on hand. Procedures should be implemented in the Treasurer's office to correct and prevent such errors. All of the Treasurer's books of record shouldbe completed in ink rather than in the present custom of pencil We noted that the Deputy Treasurer wasthe ouly individual in rite entire Treasurer's Office that knew the complete operation of the office. We recommend that the County Treasurer delegate some of her duties to other members of the staff to provide continuity and create better internal control. Upon review of the Treasurer's bank balances, we noted that the Count money had not been ratably distributed among the banks of the County as is required by Section 16-2618 (4), R.C.M., 1947. Funds on deposit in the depository banks were amply protected by pledged securities, and by the guarmnee of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. However, some of the securities pledgedby the Falrview Bank, Falrview, Moutana. did not comply with Section 16-2618, (2), R.C.M., 1947, and should be replaced with acceptable The. fQ!lowir recommendatlons pertain to the Treasurer' S re- ceipt,. ,, 1, ll voided recelks should be turned over to the Clerk and Recorder. 2. All receipts should be ordered and checked for printing error s by rite Clerk and Recorder. AnY forms which have printing er- rors should be returned to the printer for correction. The Treasurer was carrying several old outstanding checks on the books. Aay check which is eight years old or older slmuld be removed from the current lit of outstanding checks. With the exception of the Sidney Golf andCotmtry Club, all liquor licenses were collected o,I a current basis. The liquor license pro- eeeds were distributed iw4roperly, in that the CountY Portion was deposited to  County poor fund rather than to the County general fund. The records of the Treasurer and the CmmtY Clerk and Recorder were still showing delinquent reaiproperty taxesdatlng back to 1918. We also noted that the County did not start tax deed proceedlngs all property which had taxes of three years or older against it. We recommend that: 1. A study be made of all delinquent taxes to determine if the taxes are due, ca" if errors have been made in recording tax trans. actions. 2. A policy be established where the County starts tax deed ac- tlon on all land which has delinquent taxes for three or more yem's. We noted that for the past severalyears various Individuals In the Treasurer' s of the have eceived anotary fee for notarizing automo- bile titles. While we understand that each individual purchased his own notary bond, we feel that this practice is contrary to Section 25-213, R.C.M., 1947. Public Administr at Apparently there was no Anton i. Daht probate as shown on page 13 of the docket. The Public Administrator sbouidflnd out why there was no probate and attempt to clear up this aceotmt. The warrants shown outstanding should be cancelled. We again request that the PUblic Administrator, with the assist- ance of the CountY Attorney, make m effortto dispose of estate ac- counts which are a number of years old and no longer active. Justice of the Peace We noted that in Highway Patrol violations, J Gebhardt was charging his normal fees for fines of five dollars ($5.08)  less. This practice is eontrary to Section 31-112, R.C.M., 1947, which states in part "... the fees of justices of the peace in all offenses in which the statutory fine is five dollars ($5.00) or less, shall be one dollar ($1.00), bet if the statutory fine is in excess of five dol- lars $5.00), the justices of the pesee shallbe permitted the fee now prescribed by law; . . ." The Justice of the Peace CountY fines were incorrectly distrl- Imted to the Cotmty general fm, when they should have been dis- tributed to the general school fund in accordance with Section 94- 801 (1), R.C.M., 1947, r tothe Cmmty road fund in accordance with Section32-1131, R.C.M., 1947. Sheriff We noted that the charge for mileage in serving writ, process, *warrants, etc., was based on a minimum fee of one dollar ($1.08) which is contrary to Sections 25-226 and 16-2723, R.C.M., 1947. The allowable charge is $0.11 per actual mile traveled. Clerk of Court The Court trust fund was not in agreement with the Treasurer' S records. The primary reason for this was at the trust fund had never been maintained correctly nor reconciled monthly by the Clerk of Cowt. The money shown on pge 14 as ',Error in Escheatedr Property "' on the Summary of Trust Fund AecotmtBaiances should be escheat- ed to the State of Montana. Surveyor It was our understanding that the County Surveyor has been using the services of a Count7 employee in his privatebuaioeas and charging the clients for this man's services. The money received m clients was apparently used for the personal benefit of the CountY Surveyor. The use of a Count' emple,ee's services for per- sonal gain would seem questionable. We therefore recommend that if the services of a CmmtY emplee are to be used in the pri- vate business  the Coun Surveyor, then the Sttrveyor must pay a prorated share ( the emphee's salary. T.
