Grays Harbor PUD announced that they have received their fifteenth consecutive clean audit.
“Nothing is certain in life except death, taxes and apparently clean audits for the Grays Harbor PUD.”
The PUD told KXRO that at their September 15th exit conference, the Washington State Auditor’s office delivered their audit and reported no findings.
This report, focused on accountability and financial statements, credited the PUD for its clean report and for achieving it while replacing its Chief Financial Officer.
“When I accepted the post as CFO, I had full confidence in the financial performance of the utility,” said Chief Financial Officer Kathryn Skolrood. “I am very proud to see that confidence rewarded by the State Auditor. It is a credit to the utility and all the employees who helped make it happen.”
“As a public entity, we are stewards of our customers trust and resources,” said General Manager Dave Ward. “This report tells us that, once again, that trust is well placed.”
Skolrood joined the PUD in April of this year, moving from the City of Aberdeen, after former CFO Doug Streeter took a job as Finance Director at the City of Montesano.
