Meeting Date:           April 27, 2009


From:                          Jerry Boop, Finance Director, CPA, CGFO


Subject:                      Communication with those charged in governance



Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends the City Commission accept this communication from its auditors Purvis Gray.



The accounting and auditing professions have come under the microscope due to the business failures of large corporations such as Enron, WorldCom and the recent activities of Wall Street.  While much of the blame has been placed on business ethics, additional focus has been placed on the methods of communication between the auditing firm, an entity’s management and its board of directors.  This communication offers additional information in regard to the audit and provides the Commission another opportunity to ask questions regarding the audit and financial position of the City.



1.  Accept the communication from the City’s Auditors Purvis Gray; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
