The financial test that we put ourselves through each year is the annual audit which in turn produces a corresponding comprehensive financial report that summarizes what’s working and what’s coming up short.
The City’s bean-counters don’t wear fancy uniforms or announce their arrival with sirens blaring, and we don’t have them march in parades with their calculators, but they should — they’re that important.
I’m pleased to report that the City’s Audit for 2010 came back clean and green.
Blogging about auditing City finances may be one of the most boring topics I’ve ever posted on but I will never-EVER, take a clean audit for granted. I am extremely grateful for the work that our staf put in to make sure we stay in full compliance. It’s a credit to their professional management that we remain in such good standing.
If numbers is your thing, you can check out some of our accounting performance here, but if not, take my word for it, our staff does a great job.
