Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke announced Friday that the city’s 2012 audit received a “clean opinion” or “unqualified opinion” the from the Indiana State Board of Accounts.
Winnecke said the opinion reaffirms the city as "healthy" and "progressive."
The city received a “disclaimer of opinion” in 2011. City controller Russell Lloyd said the city purchased a new financial software at the end of 2010 and had problems with the conversion in 2011.
The 2012 audit exit interview conducted in March received a substantial amount of attention after former city council vice president Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley released a recording of the interview to the public.
Brinkerhoff-Reily stepped down as vice president Thursday, but will remain on the council.
