Recommendation #23 To: Montebello Unified School District

To ensure that Montebello spends its funds for allowable and reasonable purposes, it should require employees whose salaries are funded by voter-approved bond proceeds to fill out detailed timesheets to demonstrate that they work on bond-related activities. Bond proceeds should only be used to pay the portion of the salary relating to bond-funded activities that is supported by the timesheet.

Multiple meetings have taken place to discuss this process between Maintenance, Operations, and Facilities, and the Finance Department. Documentation will be submitted demonstrating that this change is taking place.
