South Kesteven District Council praised in auditor report on finances
South Kesteven District Council has been praised in a report by external auditors.
The report, which was conducted by Grant Thornton, found SKDC had “the assurance of a track record of producing robust financial plans”.
The report covers the year which ended on March 31.
Chairman of the council's governance and audit committee Paul Wood (Ind) said: "I am delighted that SKDC has received a glowing report.
"Credit goes to all the staff, particularly the finance team for their excellent work in making sure the council is in a strong financial position."
The report covered the Covid-19 pandemic.
On governance, the council demonstrated business as usual and temporary arrangements put in place due to Covid-19 were appropriately robust and applied across the organisation.
The report also said: "The council has demonstrated a clear understanding of its role in securing economy, efficiency and effectiveness in its use of resources.
"The council, despite having to redeploy and alter priorities, was still able to maintain a large proportion of its services as planned."
The report also recommended a review of the council's investments property portfolio and operational estate - and in 2021 an assets disposal strategy to consider which could be disposed of was approved.
