In this exceptional power-point presentation, Task Force member Patricia Dunn, a professional accountant w/ vast experience in transportation, dug into what she called an “antiquated” accounting system utilized by Whatcom County. She made many interesting discoveries among details that are not transparent, and overall found that, other than operating with an inefficient and difficult-t0-read accounting methodology, the County is by and large on target with its accounting of ferry operations.

Good reading, with some specific conclusions and probable forthcoming recommendations.
