On Wednesday there will be another closed meeting on the state audit of Brentwood.
Jan. 29 the Brentwood Board of Aldermen met with state auditors in a closed meeting to discuss a draft of the audit of the city of Brentwood.
The alderman met two weeks after that, on Feb. 12, in a closed session to discuss their response to the audit, which will be included with the final draft. The auditor's office gave the board a Feb. 15 deadline for its response.
Now the board has secheduled a closed-door meeting for Wednesday, which according to the agenda, is for a "discussion regarding the State Auditor's draft report."
The state audit was initiated by a citizen-led petition drive in Summer, 2011. The audit began in January, 2012.
State auditor spokesman Spence Jackson said the next meeting with state auditors will be a public delivery of the audit. That date hasn't been announced.

Update from state auditor spokesman Spence Jackson, Feb. 20.
We are still working with the city to resolve questions that came up during the exit meeting. Until we resolve any questions we and/or the city has, obtain their responses, and finalize the report, they may have closed meetings to discuss. While we set a date by which we requested responses, this date is not set in concrete and may be revised based on questions/issues needing to be resolved. We are communicating with the city about the responses and allowing additional time as needed. This is not at all unusual or unique to Brentwood.
