Township should 'welcome a forensic audit to clear the air'

to the editor,

Posted March 13, 2017

I personally think it is well past time for a forensic audit of the books in Adjala Tosorontio.

My husband and I have been questioning various aspects of the Township's spending habits for the past year, through meetings with the Mayor, CAO, and Treasurer, letters to the press, and deputations at council, with no satisfaction.


The OPP investigation just brought up more questions and concerns, ie: what are the 13 other questionable remuneration enhancements found by the police and yet to be addressed by council? And the recent special council meeting with the Township's Auditor simply brought to light that his audit wasn't concerned with any single transaction under the amount of $180,000. Therefore we still have more questions than answers and it seems to me that every time a financial issue is looked into in this Township there are lingering questions and/or no paper trail to help account for discrepancies.

Mayor Small-Brett is always speaking so eloquently about her promise of transparency and accountability. Well then, she and her council and senior staff, as well as we taxpayers, should all welcome a forensic audit to clear the air of allegations of wrong doing, if there are indeed none.
