The River City is 'Healthy' and 'Progressive' According to State Audit

The City of Evansville's 2012 audit receives the best 'opinion' from the Indiana State Board of Accounts.

The City of Evansville's 2012 audit receives the best 'opinion' from the Indiana State Board of Accounts.

Mayor Lloyd Winnecke says the 'unqualified' or 'clean' opinion sends a bold message to the citizens of Evansville that the city's finances are in order.

The exit interview for the 2012 audit in March garnered much attention after former city council Vice President Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley released a recording of the meeting to the public.

Winnecke says the purpose of the exit interview was to give the state and city an opportunity to raise issues and was not a final conclusion.

He says the opinion shows the river city is 'healthy' and 'progressive.'

The State Board of Accounts had several suggestions for improvement.

The state cites issues with the city's accounting on certain grants.

City Controller Russell Lloyd says they have addressed that concern by hiring a new grant manager.
