The City of Vernon’s auditor finished the 2021-2022 audit and submitted it to the state on May 1.

The auditor was also working on the 2022-2023 audit, which is also expected to be submitted on time.

During an April 15 City Council meeting, City Clerk Candice Hodges briefly mentioned an “audit situation.”

“The accountant has sent everything to the auditor. We have to have it in by May 2,” Hodges said. “I’ve just been pulling paperwork for that.”

Hodges said the City has been assured everything will be in prior to May 2.

“I’ve sent them everything they’ve asked for,” Hodges said.

In an email after the meeting and following a comment request, Hodges explained the audit situation further.

“The audit is behind but will be completed by the deadline the [Joint Legislative Auditing Committee] gave the City. It is the 2021-2022 audit,” Hodges said. “The program that was used for fund accounting at that time was replaced and caused some delays but they are on track now.”
