KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) - Hawaii County hasn't completed any internal audits since 2011.
The county's new auditor is working to change that.
Kailua-Kona newspaper West Hawaii Today reported Wednesday the legislative auditor position had been vacant for 16 months before Bonnie Nims took over on May 1. She says she's working on an audit of county procurement credit cards.
Her annual audit plan includes audits of real property tax delinquent accounts, cash receipts from the Parks and Recreation Department and mass transit.
The last internal audit done by the legislative auditor was a July 2011 report that found the county had put off maintenance of parks and recreation facilities for so long that repairs at many facilities were more expensive than necessary.
