The state legislative auditor says Jeanerette has widespread accounting problems, including a failure to reconcile bank statements for more than a year, a lack of controls over the use of fuel and not requiring all employees to use time sheets.
The Advocate reports the advisory report - a list of problems and recommended fixes - found no wrongdoing but cited 15 areas of concern, mostly dealing with poor accounting practices.
Many of the problems outlined in the report released Monday have been touched on in prior audits and pre-date Mayor Aprill Foulcard, who has held the post for less than a year.
She was appointed interim mayor in July following the death of Mayor Tim deClouet, who died two years into his first term.
