Good afternoon,

I am unclear as to your reference to an external firm hired “to do a deep dive” into the City’s financials.  Purvis, Gray and Co. was retained by the City Auditor’s office to conduct the City’s annual financial audit for fiscal year 2018, but no other firm has been retained to conduct additional financial review of FY18.  If you are referring to the FY18 annual audit, the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) can be found at the following link:


Thank you,

Diane Wilson

Interim Finance Director
