When Congress established the Valles Caldera National Preserve in 2000 as an independent government agency, it probably didn’t mean that their creation would be financially unaccountable during its first nine years.
But one thing led to another and nine years later the governing board of trustees has finally completed audits for a period of three of those years, from 2004-2007.
On Wednesday, the trust announced that those first audits are available to the public on the Caldera’s website (www.vallescaldera.gov/about/trust/trust_ref.aspx).
Getting even that far has been a struggle.
“You have to think hard about what caused this,” Trust Executive Director Gary Bratcher said in a telephone interview this morning. “There were growing pains, changes in trustees and the administrative staff, and so forth.”
“The important part of this is that it’s all been investigated and finalized,” he said. “It gives us a list of corrective actions, many of which are already underway, so that we can right the ship and go forward.”
