Independent Auditors’ Report

To the Board of Commissioners

Henderson, Kentucky

Report on the Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying financial statements of the Henderson Water Utility – City of Henderson, Kentucky – Water and Sewer Commission, as of and for the year ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, and the related notes to the financial statements, which collectively comprise the Henderson Water Utility- City of Henderson, Kentucky – Water and Sewer Commission’s basic financial statements as listed in the table of contents.

Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; this includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditors’ Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express opinions on these financial statements based on our audit.  We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America and the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States.  Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements.  The procedures selected depend on the auditors’ judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error.  In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control.  Accordingly, we express no such opinion.  An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinions.

Opinions

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the respective financial position of the Henderson Water Utility – City of Henderson, Kentucky – Water and Sewer Commission as of June 30, 2015, and the respective changes in financial position and cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Other Matters

Required Supplementary Information

Accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America require that the Management Discussion and Analysis on pages 3 through 6 and schedules of the Commission’s Proportionate Share of Net Pension Liabilities and Commission Contributions, on pages 34 and 35, be presented to supplement the basic financial statements.  Such information, although not a part of the basic financial statements, is required by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board who considers it to be an essential part of financial reporting for placing the basic financial statements in an appropriate operational, economic, or historical context.  We have applied certain limited procedures to the required supplementary information in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America, which consisted of inquiries of management about the methods of preparing the information and comparing the information for consistency with management’s responses to our inquiries, the basic financial statements, and other knowledge we obtained during our audit of the basic financial statements.  We do not express an opinion or provide any assurance on the information because the limited procedures do not provide us with sufficient evidence to express an opinion or provide any assurance.

Other Information

Our audit was conducted for the purpose of forming opinions on the financial statements as a whole.  The Supplemental Schedules of Revenues, Expenses, and Changes in Net Position by Division for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 on pages 32 and 33 are presented for purposes of additional analysis and are not a required part of the basic financial statements.  Such schedules are the responsibility of management and were derived from and relate directly to the underlying accounting and other records used to prepare the financial statements.  The schedules have been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit of the financial statements and certain additional procedures, including comparing and reconciling such schedules directly to the underlying accounting and other records used to prepare the financial statements or to the financial statements themselves, and other additional procedures in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America.  In our opinion, the schedules are fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation to the basic financial statements as a whole.

Implementation of New Accounting Standards

As disclosed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Henderson Water Utility implemented GASB Statement No. 68, Accounting and Financial Reporting for Pensions- an amendment of GASB Statement No. 27, and GASB Statement No. 71, Pension Transition for Contributions Made Subsequent to the Measurement Date-an amendment of GASB No. 68, during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2015.

Other Reporting Required by Government Auditing Standards

In accordance with Government Auditing Standards, we have also issued our report on our consideration of the Henderson Water Utility- City of Henderson, Kentucky – Water and Sewer Commission’s internal control over financial reporting and our tests of its compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts and grant agreements and other matters.  The purpose of that report is to describe the scope of our testing of internal control over financial reporting and compliance and the results of that testing, and not to provide an opinion on the internal control over financial reporting or on compliance.  That report is an integral part of an audit performed in accordance with Government Auditing Standards in considering Henderson Water Utility- City of Henderson, Kentucky – Water and Sewer Commission’s internal control over reporting and compliance.
