Three signatures might not be enough

A city councilman at Seneca questions whether the signatures of three city officials are enough for documents to open new bank accounts.  The city is preparing to process millions of dollars in grant monies from the federal government, to help replenish the city’s financial worth after last year’s tornado, as well as assistance in recovering from the world pandemic.  But a resolution last night that gives the mayor, the clerk-treasurer, and the city administrator the signature authority was held up when Councilman Stuart Pohl suggested it might be wise to solicit the opinion of the city’s outside auditor.  Clerk-Treasurer Josh Riches and City Administrator Scott Moulder addressed Pohl’s concerns, and Moulder offered to run it by the auditor.
