At the Dec. 17 Brentwood Board of Aldermen meeting mayor Pat Kelly announced that the board of aldermen will meet with state auditors on Jan. 29 in an executive session to review the state’s audit of the city.
The audit was triggered by a citizen-led petition drive in Summer 2011. The audit began in January of this year.
State Auditor's Office Communications Director Spence Jackson said the board of aldermen will be be given a chance to review the audit and respond to the findings.
Jackson said the step is a final piece of the audit, and the board's response will be included when it is released to the public.
The board of aldermen will have no power to edit the audit. It is expected to be released in early 2013.
When the audit is complete, state auditors will either present it in public in Brentwood, or give city officials and media representatives a copy.
