Tuesday, November 18, 2008

After recently circulated city employee embezzlement rumors led the Red Boiling Springs City Council to vote to contact the State Comptroller’s Office last month to inquire about a city audit, Dennis Dycus, Director of the Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury, Division of Municipal Audit, responded via E-mail to the city’s request.

Dycus’ response, which was presented to the council during its regular Nov. 13th meeting, is as follows:

‘As you already know, the city’s financial affairs are audited by a public accounting firm which contracts through our office to perform said audits. With a staff of only 19 people, I do not have the personnel or financial resources to perform financial audits of local governments in Tennessee.
