In response, Mayor Barker stated:
“Today’s receipt of the audit for Fiscal Year 2019 is significant because it’s our fifth audit in less than three years. Coming into office in 2017, we knew the city’s financial recovery would hinge on getting all delayed audits fast-tracked so that they were up to date and then staying on task with the years that followed. Its receipt is a testament to our administration’s focus on infrastructure and quality of life projects for progress across all neighborhoods – while maintaining fiscal responsibility. Today would not be possible without the steadfast commitment of our Chief Administrative Officer Ann Jones, CFO Connie Everett and the work of the Council for selecting Topp, McWhorter, Harvey, PLLC to do complete the audit expeditiously without delay.”
