Transient Bishop Expenses

Postby jstark5 » Sun Aug 06, 2017 2:14 pm

I am a fairly new stake clerk and have no experience at the stake or ward level as a clerk...

I have a ward clerk who cut checks for Fast Offering expenses for the transient bishop out of the ward's budget. (a previous ward clerk put a reimbursement category for Transient Bishop under the member approved finances). In so doing the ward budget has lost several hundred dollars out of its budget. How can I go about helping the ward clerk correct this information and money. We have good record keeping and have all the names, dates and dollar amounts for each Fast Offering expense that the transient bishop has made. Can I have the ward clerk write up fast offering expenses and cut checks...but this time the checks would be written to the ward (instead of for housing, energy, or food locations) to reimburse the ward account? Or is this a SLC call?

You should be able to reclassify the expenses as coming from fast offering.
