Auditors Report of the City treasurers Office top2
To the Honorable Mayor and
City Council of MeCook City
Gentlemen in presenting to
you my report of the auditing
of the books and accounts of A
C Ebort as city treasurer I
find it necessary to submit a few
explanatory remarks
I ilhrve made a complete cheek
of all books and papers- belong
ing or in any way appeirtaining
to the eity treasurers office for
the period fwfni April 23rd 1900
to April 6 1910 that wore turn
ed over to me by the city offic
ials or that I managed to get
possession of but the result is
far from biing salL faetory as a
number of becks and piiiprs am
bocks and papers should
after repeated search
Flu- report leprcs nts only the
auditing of the books and pa
p i that vrere available and can
not be taken as ecmplete but is
ubjet to change if it any time
ml sing books and papers could
be found
The amount stated as gu hand
ai the beginning of Mr Eberts
t rm is correct as it is ovi
dencid by the last report of iliis
predecessor as well as lfis -own
iirst report
The amounts received from the
county treasurer for all city
funds tho sewer fund and road
fund were obtained frcm the
toriinty records but no book of
Mr Eherts can be found to ver
ify the various county treasur
ers figures
The duplicate receipts for the
occupation tax run consecutively
for the 10 years and eeom to be
ery near complete but as a
great number of receipts- wlu eli
under the laws and ordinances
go to the school fund are tin the
same books witih the o
tax receipts it is
errors o ecu i -red in
these as an many cass
c nint
the re-
s do not indicate to wluich
fund thev Avere accredited
The receipts for the sale of
cemetery lots and burial permit s
and aico for Avater said at th
cemetery are not complete
Receipts for dog tax collected
are onlv to he found for the hist
lered at the beginning of
EboiVs term was of court
by Mm but it is -impossible
state the amount cf interest
Balance on hand April 6 1910 4 958 78
Receipts 62 086 16
paiid on some Nor is it possible
to determine Avhat other etity
Avarrants i asued prior ito liis
term but not registered Avere un
paid at the beginning of his term
and latter paid by him
The amount of Avarrants alloAV
ed by the city council as tabu
lated in this report is I belieAe
very near correct I ciheeked the
council proceedings for the en
tire period and made lists of all
claims allowed Against this list
1 checked the warrants redeemed
by Mr Ebert and also the pres
ent treasurer and- noted the
amount of interest on those that
Avere registered These Avarrants
are in existence AViilli seme ex
ceptions frcm 1905 on or for
half of this period T also
eh e eked against thiis list all of
the stubs of the Avar rant books ol
tainable They reach back to
190 3 I found one instance Avihere
tlie council proceedings omitted
all meetings for tAvo months an I
showed no claims allowed but I
found the stuhs for t
issued for tint time
these tOtie list
For the- time thatt uO Avanants
win be found it is impe3iblc to
get the interest on the Avarrants
tlhait might have -been registered
The amounts reeeiA ed from the
county treasurer included the an
nual Library appropriations and
T had tio get th amounts paid out
by the library board and add
to the Avarrants issued by the citA
The list of Library Avarrants is
Adding to the amounts regis
tered cif Apnil 23 1900 the Avar
rants ijjacd by the city council
and Libraiy board the interest
paid by IMr Ebcrt on registered
AA arrants as far as obtainable anc
the amount on hand on April 6tih
1910 and d cbuct ihe amount cf
the Avarrants AA liieh Avere unpaid
on that date and Aveiv since paid
by the pre int city treasurer
make s a total amount cf if152

lv should be increased 8y at least
three years cf this period to any several hundred dollars for inter-
extent and fudging from the re-
ee ijils of these veais lietAveen
Jjslono and 2000 rfiould haiAe
been easily collected in the
y rs
The receipts from the city
scales seem to be complete
A number of miscellane cius re
ceipts appeared on a few of the
monthly treasurers reports
Whieh could be found but ns folic
number of reports in existence is
very small it is impossible U
judge at the amount of likely oth
er miscellaneous items that Avere
on the missing reports
Tlu amount of AAarrants

Wihiile this report is as com
plete it could be under the cir
caimetancies I regret that it is
not as oomplete as it ought to
be It AAiill probably never be
possible to get am absolute cor
rect check on Mr Ebert s Avork
unless lb is oavii ledgers and bank
books- can be found and compar
