Audit Highlights 7 Problems in Spokane City Hall
The city of Spokane’s administration will receive the detailed findings from their annual audit on Thursday. Mayor David Condon says the city council got a briefing Tuesday, and the city is already working on some of the seven problems highlighted in the audit. Of seven problem areas, five are under the department of community housing and human services (CHHS). Condon underlined the audits summary alongside representatives from the CHHS department, and community groups who receive the city’s support.
Condon: “We take the findings very seriously and in all cases have a plan in place to correct them. It is important to note that while each represents a necessary improvement, the findings were with our processes and from the year 2013.”
The audit is required, and compiled by the state auditor. Condon says this year’s audit also highlights one concern in the finance department, and one in the fire department. Details should be released Thursday.
