DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - An annual audit of Dubuque’s city finances has revealed compliance issues but no violations of state law.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1RImCme ) that city employees were reminded to be diligent in the future about potential conflicts of interest.

Several business transactions were identified as potential conflicts of interest because they involved public money going to businesses owned by people related to city employees.

The audit also found reporting errors related to grant money the city received. City officials say they’ve implemented procedures to prevent errors in the future.

The city is subjected to an independent audit each fiscal year.
