District considers new accounting program

Wednesday, April 22, 2015 — The Susanville Sanitary District is looking into potentially using a new accounting program.

During the Tuesday, April 13 meeting, board members Dale Soule and John Murray opted to serve on an ad hoc committee that would review and analyze the Uniform Public Constructions Cost Act.

The program, which was created in 1983, allows local agencies to perform public project work up to $45,000 with its own workforce, if the agency followed the Cost Accounting Policies and Procedures Manual of the California Uniform Construction Cost Accounting Commission, according to the information packet provided at the meeting.
