City’s priority is accountability to the taxpayers
After reading the Mount Carroll city audit, I find some of the very things former Alderman Cooper, Alderman Sisler and I have been trying to convey. A few aldermen asked whether the auditors found anything fraudulent. They didn’t find anything to substantiate that.
This wasn’t a forensic audit. The auditor states, “We don’t express an opinion or provide any assurance on the information because the limited procedures don’t provide us with sufficient evidence to express an opinion or provide any assurance.”
This year’s audit says the council should review the payroll on a surprise basis, a statement also made by the attorney general’s office. In February 2011, former Alderman Cooper and I did just that, and we were crucified.
