Brighton City Council approved a resolution last night awarding a contract to Two Hills Accounting & Consulting for a forensic audit of the city’s Utilities funds dating back to 2008. The resolution follows a recommendation made to City Council Oct. 15 by the eight-person forensic audit selection committee.
In September, City Council selected eight Brighton water customers to serve on a committee to help select an independent firm to conduct a forensic audit. City Council members selected two water customers from their respective ward to serve on this committee. The committee members include: Rodney Rexwinkle and Kevin Wieland for ward 1; Jim Snyder and Tiffany Teller for ward 2; Brian Engle and Tracie Morris for ward 3; and James Tuggle and Judi Hulvey for ward 4. The committee met Oct. 3 to review submittals received for the city’s Request for Proposal (RFP).
“The forensic auditors will review revenue and spending by year and compare each year’s spending with the annual approved budget,” Finance Director Maria Ostrom said. “The work is expected to take four months to complete and staff hopes to have a report to City Council by the second quarter of 2020.”
The contract awarded to Two Hills Accounting & Consulting is $54,350. For questions concerning the forensic audit, please contact Finance Director Maria Ostrom at 303-655-2130 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
