The Benton Parks Commission has compiled a list of specific areas into which the group wants local accounting firm Yoakum, Lovell and Co. to investigate.
The audit was approved by the commission in April following a review of concession stand cash transactions handled by the Benton Parks Department at Tyndall Park in 2011.
The review, conducted by the city of Benton Finance Manager Karen Scott, revealed a lack of documents such as receipts and invoices to track transactions from the fund.
