The much anticipated audit of operations at the Fairgrounds and the Recreation department will indeed be available Monday and its my intent to make sure the Council, staff and others receive it simultaneously. I had a call Friday afternoon from the auditor saying she expected to have it ready Monday and will call when it is. The Council meets at 6Pm, so that is as good a time as any to distribute it.
The report is a thorough look at the issues that recently came to light and contains recommended changes in procedures and practices. Accountant Laurie Podvin conducted the audit and will meet with Council at a future date to discuss the findings and answer specific questions once everyone has digested the report.
At Monday's Council meeting, lawmakers will discuss revisions to the water rate schedules, decide on a tax levy and take up the matter of beer concessions at the Fairgrounds.
Council is also continuing to work on reviewing applications for City Clerk.
